“I want to serve a warning to all potential developers particularly those who build along the roads without permit from the Roads and Highway Authority to desist from that because we will soon demolish all such structures to pave the way for massive roads development,” he stated.

He said, ‘’the government is not obliged to compensate owners of illegally sited buildings that are demolished’’.

He, therefore, called their immediate removal to fast-track work on the project to ensure early completion.

Sod cutting

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday October 19, 2022   cut the sod for the start of works on a four-tier interchange in Suame, Kumasi, fulfilling a pledge he made during his tour of the Ashanti Region last year.

According to Akufo-Addo, “The Suame Interchange will be the first four-tier interchange in the Ashanti Region, and the second in Ghana, after the Pokuase Interchange, which I commissioned on 9 July 2021.” He said that, once completed, it will address the perennial congestion experienced around the Suame Roundabout and improve urban mobility within the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area.

Addressing the gathering, the president announced that the Suame Interchange will consist of a four-tier interchange at the current Suame Roudabout; an overpass at Abrepo Junction; an overpass at Krofuom Junction; an overpass at Anomangye Junction; an overpass at Magazine New Road Junction; and an overpass at Abusuakruwa Junction.

The construction of the Suame Interchange will be undertaken by M/S Grupo Dizmar of Spain and Rango Construction Ltd, a Ghanaian company. The complementary road component will be undertaken wholly by the Ghanaian firm Rango Construction, supervision of the entire project being the responsibility of the Ministry of Roads and Highways through the Department of Urban Roads.

The president said that apart from the Suame Interchange, the government is tackling critical road projects throughout the country in a holistic manner, so that every part of Ghana gets quality, all-weather roads.
