President John Mahama has reiterated government's commitment of expanding the four-lane Tema motorway to six lanes to ease traffic on the road.

"Plans are far advanced to construct four container terminals, an access road from the ports to the Motorway and expand the Motorway from four lanes to six lanes," he announced.

Speaking about progress in the construction of road networks in the country at the inauguration of the Kwame Nkrumah interchange, Mahama said, "Routine maintenance works were carried out on 4,819KM of trunk, 5300km of feeder and 5200km of urban road networks while periodic maintenance activities comprising regovernning, spot improvement and resealing works were carried out on 9.4km,252km and 2400metres of trunk, feeder and urban roads respectively."

Currently, the 19-kilometre highway that links Tema to Accra is in a deplorable state as it is covered with deep potholes and road markings have been wiped off by the thousands of vehicles that ply the roads everyday. The road generates huge funds from road toll tickets daily.

The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority has entered into a concessionary agreement with a private consortium to expand the Port of Tema to more than three times its current capacity.

The first phase of the project is the construction of four container terminals and the expansion of the Tema motorway into six lanes at a cost of US $ 1.5 billion.
