“The travelling public is therefore urged to drive cautiously, adhere to Road Safety Regulations, and respect directional signage.”
The motorway was closed to traffic for construction works to be carried on the three-tier Tema Motorway Roundabout Interchange.
The project had a June 6, 2020, deadline but it has been completed before the scheduled date.
The Interchange is a $57 million project being financed under a grant from the Japanese government through its agency, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The interchange will facilitate easy connection from Accra to Aflao and onwards to Togo, as well as the Akosombo road.
