The expansion works on the about 11 kilometres Takoradi-Adiembra-Sekondi road to make it a dual carriageway, has reached an advanced stage.

The €65 million road project which is expected to be completed within 24 months is in fulfillment of a promise the current New Patriotic Party government made to the people of Sekondi.

It is being executed by Viabuild Africa NV with ADK Consortium as consultants.

Some of the works done include the construction of some new culverts and also extension of existing ones to accommodate the expansion project.

The road network plays a pivotal role in the economic development of the Sekondi -Takoradi Metropolis.

When completed, it will enable the efficient movement of goods from production sites to markets o as well as the Takoradi port.
