Circle Interchange: Ghana Opens West Africa’s Longest and Highest Flyover In Accra
President of Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has commissioned an outstanding interchange, a beautiful piece of road infrastructure to replace the old Circle Roundabout in Accra on Monday, 14th November, 2016.
According to President Mahama, the interchange becomes the longest and the highest flyover in West Africa.
“It is the longest, highest fly over in West Africa,” the president declared to an ecstatic crowd of government officials, party supporters, political leaders and the general public.
The facility, which has three flyovers, also has a recreational facility, library, bus terminal, restaurant, fire, police and ambulance stations.
The site also has an imposing statue of Ghana’s first president, Dr Kwame Nkrumah which is “a fitting memorial in honour of the greatest Pan Africanist.”
“Nkrumah’s statue will remind people about the man who led the way to our nation’s birth,” the President said.
The project is “not just a modern interchange but a convenient place for tourism. The health and happiness of citizens are also important,” he stressed adding, that the citizenry can always take a stroll at the water park with the beautiful lighting architecture.
He said the new interchange will “facilitate easy movement of goods and services” on one of the most busy roads in Accra.
“Experts estimate that, the congestion that used to be created here as a result of the heavy traffic and lack of traffic flow, resulted in an estimated loss of about $100 million per annum to our national economy,” he added.
Ghana is rising and greater times are ahead of us, as he promised. We will continue to work hard and change lives of Ghanaians.
