Traffic Diversion Begins at Tema Motorway Intersection

by Oluwatosin Racheal Alabi

To facilitate the construction of the second phase of the Tema Motorway grade separated intersection, the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) has announced plans for road diversions starting October 2.

In a recent statement, the GHA outlined the traffic management strategies, including various road diversions, to ensure smooth traffic flow during the construction period. The authority urges motorists to be vigilant about these changes when nearing the Tema Motorway intersection.

Diversions Overview:

  • Motorists from Accra heading towards Afienya and Akosombo are advised to use the outer lane, exit onto the Harbour Road, and make a U-Turn after the pedestrian bridge.
  • Those from Tema to Accra should remain in the left lane, cross the flyover, and follow signs for the appropriate U-Turns.
  • Motorists moving between Aflao and Dawenya, or vice versa, have specific U-Turn points designated post the pedestrian bridge.
  • Drivers traveling from Akosombo and Afienya to Dawenya and Aflao should follow the left lane, then use the Harbour Road ramp to access Aflao Road.
  • For those commuting between Accra and Aflao in either direction, the underpass, located on the left lane, is recommended.

Dr. Oby Ezekwesili and Festus Osifo, representing the GHA, expressed concerns about the government’s perceived lack of attention to the increased petrol prices and their impact on citizens. They urged the government to engage in peaceful dialogue to resolve the ongoing issues.

Speaker Tajudeen Abbas of the House of Representatives, while understanding of the concerns, believes a strike might compound Nigeria’s current economic difficulties. Given the national security challenges and other economic pressures, Abbas advocates for unity and trust in the government’s plans to alleviate the hardships faced by the public.

This infrastructure project, part of the Tema Motorway Grade Separation Project, is backed by a $25 million grant secured through the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The GHA appreciates the public’s understanding and patience during this period and urges all motorists to comply with the new measures for the duration of the construction.
