The completion of work on construction of the Tamale Interchange which has already surpassed its deadline by a month has been rescheduled and is now due for completion before the end of the year 2021, according to Project Manager, Engineer Degbotde. Work on the Interchange, the first ever of its kind in Northern Ghana, is at 80% done but has already gone beyond the July 2021 deadline, owing to difficulties in compensation and delay in access to buildings earmarked for demolition.
These facts came to light as President Akufo Addo, who is on a two - day official tour of the Northern Region, visited the site of the project to interact with workers and to find on firsthand the progress of work. Engineer Degbotde briefed the president on the work that have been done and what was left to be done, saying that beyond working on the spans at the Northern and Southern ends of the road, what was left was asphalting and the fixing of streetlights and drains. The Engineer was optimistic as he assured that the project will be completed by the end of the year should contractors continue to work at current rate.
President Akufo - Addo, two years ago, cut sod for work to begin on the construction of the one kilometre interchange to be funded by part of 2 billion dollar Sinohydro deal with China. When completed, the road will enhance free flow of traffic and provide easy route for vehicles travelling further North to the Upper East Region and beyond to neigbouring Burkina Faso.
