Three photos of Kwame Nkrumah Circle throughout the years

Kwame Nkrumah Circle is one of the most busiest and iconic roads in Ghana. Kwame Nkrumah Circle is part of the numerous roundabouts in Accra which are being converted to interchanges to ease the traffic situation in Accra. The road links Accra to Kumasi, it also links Accra to Cape Coast via Kaneshie and the road also leads to the sea. It is a heavy duty road as it leads to the Central Business District of Accra.


Circle in the 1960s

The picture above shows how "Circle" looked before they built the Odawna station and other buildings alone the place. It was full of greens and even the popular GCB Towers was not yet built.


2. Circle in the 1990s-2000s

This is perhaps the "Circle" we are used to. It had a fountain at the middle and the GCB towers was firmly in place.


3. Kwame Nkrumah Circle now Kwame Nkrumah Interchange

As one of the best roads in Ghana, the Interchange serves as one of the legacy of ex President Mahama. It was built to ease traffic and also to beautify the city. Nicknamed "Ghana Dubai". The new Kwame Nkrumah Circle is a class of its own.
