The deployment of traffic diversion measures on the Accra-Tema Motorway has been announced by the Ministry of Roads and Highways in coordination with the Department of Urban Roads.
This choice was chosen in light of ongoing efforts to construct a bridge that will connect Flowerpot to East Legon and over the highway. The development is a component of the Flowerpot Interchange project, which aims to improve local transportation and reduce traffic.
In accordance with a statement from the ministry, drivers are asked to use caution, respect posted speed limits, and abide by any temporary traffic management signs that may be in place.
The ministry has also specified plans to place six height restriction gantries, each with a maximum height clearance of 4.5 meters, at various points along the Accra-Tema Motorway prior to the construction zone. Any cars that go beyond this height restriction will be directed to use a specific route to leave the highway.
Prior to arriving at the construction zone, there will be six height restriction gantries (each measuring 4.5 meters) placed at various points along the Accra Tema Motorway. Vehicles taller than 4.5 meters will be redirected to use the approved path to leave the stretch.
The Ministry regrets any inconvenience these traffic detours may have caused during construction and realizes that they may have caused some.
