Construction Of Pokuase Interchange Is Near Completion – Resident Engineer Reveals
Work on the $84-million Pokuase Interchange at the ACP Junction is progressing steadily, with all the major works nearly completed.
The Resident Engineer, Kwabena Bempong, disclosed this in an interview sighted by Tapnewsgh yesterday.
He indicated that, 91.8 per cent of the project had been completed.
Mr. Bempong said the bridges linking Accra to Kwabenya, Awoshie, Kumasi, and Pokuase had been completed and opened to traffic.
Currently, Mr Bempong, who is the Resident Engineer for Associated Consultants, the consulting company for the project, said work on the bridge connecting Kwabenya to Kumasi was still in progress, and would be completed by March 2021.
Mr. Bempong said the project, initially scheduled for completion in March, would be completed in April, after the government granted a four-day extension requested by the contractor, due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
He indicated that, the request granted by the government will ensure substantial work on the project is completed by April.
