The Director of the Department of Urban Roads, Alhaji Abass Awolu, has assured President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that the 7.5-kilometre Teshie Lekma road will be completed and handed over in June 2020.
With the construction of the road being undertaken by M/S GS International at a cost of GHS87,883,579.00, which is being borne by the government, Alhaji Abass Awolu told the President on Wednesday, 4 December 2019 during his tour of the Greater Accra Region that one of the two carriageways is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The Teshie Link, which is located within the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly, has been left unconstructed for 30 years.
It begins from the main Teshie Highway through the LEKMA Hospital and terminates on the Spintex road.
The works involve the construction of the Teshie Link (7.5 km) into an asphaltic concrete dual-carriage.
