The 5.8-kilometer Borteyman-Motorway Road project is about 70% complete, with asphalt overlay expected to start in earnest this month.
The construction of the project consists of a 5.8km dual-lane main carriageway (43.66m lanes) with asphaltic concrete pavement surface, an additional 5.8km single service lane with 2×6m lanes with asphaltic concrete pavement surface, and the construction of walkways and cycling lanes on both sides of the road.
The Minister of Roads and Highways, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Attah, Heads of the Agencies, and Directors of the Ministry on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, inspected the progress of work on the School Junction Borteyman- Motorway Road Project. The Hon. expressed satisfaction with the quality of the work done by the contractor during the inspection tour of the project. According to the Minister, his excitement is
based on the speed at which the contractor is working without compromising on quality.
“The period of construction is 18 months. However, this job has been done ahead of schedule, within 12 months, and is cumulatively 70% complete’’. The Director of the Department of Urban Roads, Ing. James Amoo-Gottfried on his part said, “the work is on course, the contractor is ahead of schedule, and we are
satisfied with the quality and progress of the work done so far. We believe that by the end of this year, most of the work would have been done unless some unexpected events happen’’.
The project commenced officially in August 2022 and is expected to be completed at the end of this year. The project aims at improving road connectivity and access to the Borteyman Sports Complex, where the 13th All Africa Games will be held next year.
The project which is being executed by Oswal Investments Limited when completed is expected to reduce travel time and improve road safety around the Ashale Botwe, School Junction, Nmai Dzorn, and Borteyman to the motorway.
