The new footbridge constructed to enhance free and safe movement of pedestrians across the 37-Madina highway at Tetteh Quarshie has been commissioned for public use.

The disability-friendly footbridge was constructed by Waagner Biro Bridge Systems AG as part of a $8.5million project to construct four pedestrian bridges at hazardous road locations in Accra and Kumasi.

Cutting the sod for the official use of the bridge, Chief of Staff, Mr. Julius Debrah called for intensified public education to discourage the public from endangering their lives by running across the highway. He said, the casualty rate on the stretch necessitated interventions such as the footbridge to ensure safety of the commuting public.

Minister of Roads and Highways, Inusah Fuseini emphasized that pedestrians will be restricted from crossing the highway to ensure they necessarily use the footbridge.

According to him, Ghana’s high scores in road safety in Africa could be attributed to the construction of the safety bridges.

He added that plans were far advanced for the construction of a similar footbridge at Shiashie also on the same stretch, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) junction in Kumasi and the Mallam market site.
