The Tamale interchange, which is about one kilometre long, links the Kumasi road through the Point 7 road, the Central Taxi Rank and Central Market intersection with the Melcom and Bolgatanga roads. On April 10, 2019, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo launched the $2 billion Government of Ghana-Sinohydro Master Project Support Agreement and also cut the sod for the construction of the Tamale Interchange. According to the President, through a barter arrangement, Sinohydro Limited would provide $2 billion worth of priority infrastructure projects of the government’s choice across the country in exchange for Ghana’s refined bauxite.
According to the Vice president of the republic of Ghana Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the last Manifesto launched said the Tamale Interchange is about 40 per cent in completion, the residents of Tamale were happy upon hearing this, but most of the people are worried about it because, their businesses have slow down a bit due to the construction of the Interchange, Traders were asked to leave from their various location of services but they are very happy that the region is to get it's first Interchange, the Tamale Interchange is the first Interchange in the five Northern Regions. The construction of the Interchange is still on going.
The business men and women, those working near the Interchange especially hawkers, food vendors, lorry parks or stations are affected, the Central Taxi rank is also affected due to the construction of the Interchange and this has made movement of cars, tricycles, pedestrians and other vehicles very difficult, the Central Market around Taxi rank and the Ababu market has been so congested due to the relocation of traders and business men. The happiest news is that the Interchange will be completed before the end of the year.
