The Pokuase Interchange and Local Roads Project, which is the first 4-Tier Stack Interchange in West Africa, was adjudged the Most Commendable Project of the year at the just ended awards ceremony of the FIDIC Contract Users conference and awards ceremony in London at the Tower Hotel.
The plaque was received by the Minister for Roads and Highways and MP for Atiwa West, Mr. Kwasi Amoako Atta flanked by the Chief Director and the project consultants, Messrs Associated Consultants Ltd.
This is the second award received by the project after it was honoured by the GhIE Engineering event recently held in Accra.
