The Mallam Junction to Kasoa stretch of road, where the Ghana Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) Sanitation and Water project with support from World Bank constructed a major drain would be closed to motorist on Sunday 5th August, 2018, at 10:00pm to Monday 6th August, 2018, at 10:00am.

According to the GAMA Coordinator, Ing George Aseidu who briefed journalists indicated that the closure is to allow for the section where the drain has been construction on the main road to be asphalted.

He further revealed that on the 8th of August 2018, next week Wednesday at 10:00pm to the following day Thursday 10:00am the road would be closed for the asphalting work to continue on the portion where the drain was constructed through the main road.

Hence the Kaneshie to Kasoa bound road would be closed to traffic and there would be diversion to the Kasoa to Kaneshie stretch, Ing George Aseidu told Journalists in his briefing on Friday morning.

On Saturday the 11th of August, 2018 at 10:00pm the Kasoa to the Kaneshie section would be closed to traffic till the following morning Sunday 10:00am the 12th of August 2018, which would be the final lap of asphalting, whiles traffic would be diverted back to the already asphalted portion on the phase one.

The GAMA Coordinator noted that the time were chosen deliberately because, they were looking at a situation where the traffic would be very low which was mainly in the night.

Again starting from today, “we would start preparatory work to prepare the place but would not necessitate us closing the road and we want you to alert motorist to be careful when they go through this section of the road”.

He further added that sections of the road that were bad before the drain was constructed would be repaired whiles, thirty meters to the right and left of the sections that the drain construction passed through would be asphalted.
