Ghana - Awoshie-Pokuase Road Project - ESIA Summary

22-Jan-2009

The proposed project is the re-construction/construction of the 15km Awoshie-Pokuase road in the Ga West District of the Greater Accra Region in Ghana. A Right-of-Way (RoW) of 90 m (300 ft) is proposed to be maintained. The proposed road is a component of the Arterial Road Development Program (ARDP), which for Accra is targeted at linking the capital with by-pass roads to major highways leading to various parts of the country. Development of the Awoshie-Pokuase road has become crucial in order to: i) provide an alternative route for vehicular traffic currently using the Pokuase-Achimota route to access the western parts of Accra and beyond; ii) improve the transportation system between Pokuase and Awoshie; and iii) open up adjoining rural settlements in the district.
