President Mahama Inaugurates Kwame Nkrumah Interchange-Videos and Pictures



President John Dramani Mahama has revealed that congestion at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle caused a loss of 100 million dollars annually to the Ghanaian economy prior to the construction of the new Kwame Nkrumah Interchange.

“Lack of traffic flow [at Circle] resulted in an estimated loss of about 100 million dollars per annum to our national economy,” President Mahama said when he inaugurated the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange at Circle in Accra, Monday.

President Mahama also stated that the flyover which is the longest and highest in West Africa will immensely relieve over 200, 000 motorists who ply the Circle route daily.

“This is the longest flyover and the highest in West Africa…please note I said flyover, the longest bridge is in Lagos, Nigeria but the longest and highest flyover is in Accra, Ghana,” the president added.

Fitted with facilities such as a police station to maintain law and order, an ambulance and fire stations to respond to emergency health and fire issues, the newly constructed interchange actually reflect modernity.
The facility also comes with newly constructed lorry parks for commercial vehicles that ply their trade to Nsawam, Suhum, Koforidua, Nkawkaw, Konongo, Kumasi, Winneba, Cape Coast, Elmina, Takoradi and beyond.“One specific aspect of the project, which has been the side attraction in the night, is the dancing fountain”, which has become the cynosure of all eyes, causing many to describe the interchange as a mini-Dubai.

A statue of Ghana’s First President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has been placed at the heart of the interchange, known as Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, to attract both foreign and domestic tourists. The Neoplan and Tema Stations have also been reconstructed.
President Mahama also mentioned other projects, which are also scheduled for inauguration later in the month.

He mentioned the James-Town-Bukom ultramodern boxing arena and the new liquid waste treatment plant, to make way for the eternal closure of the lavender hill, which has been in existence for the past 60 years.

Let’s shout out to our friends at the Flagstaff House Communications for these beautiful pictures !
