On Tuesday, 6th December 2022, I commissioned the Afienya Road over Bridge on the Tema-Mpakadan Railway Line Project.

The project, a brainchild of the first NPP Government of 2001 – 2009, when the highly respected Christopher Ameyaw Akumfi was Minister for Harbours and Railways, was conceived to create a multimodal transportation network, involving road, rail and lake transportation, which will facilitate the haulage of cargo and the movement of people from the southern part of the country to the northern sector, through a mix of intermodal transport systems.

I also had the opportunity to inspect some of the ongoing works at the Afienya Railway Station, as well as the works on the track, and I was very happy with the progress made so far. I also proceeded to inspect the Volta Rail Bridge over the Volta River to assess the status of work. I have been assured by the contractor that the few outstanding works remaining on the project will be completed and the project handed over to Government for operations within the first half of next year.

The Tema-Mpakadan-Buipe multi-modal transport project, when successfully completed and operationalised, will link the Tema Port to the lake transport network, especially the north-south movement over a distance of some four hundred kilometres, and open up the Lake to the transportation of not only fuel and cement, but also containerized cargo and agricultural produce from the northern enclave and Afram Plains to the Port of Tema and other destinations.
