The government has committed money to allow contractors working on four major bypasses on the Kumasi-Accra Highway to complete the projects.

The bypasses of Osino, Anyinam, Enyiresi, and Konongo are part of the government’s plan to dualize the Kumasi-Accra Highway.

The four bypasses total more than 40 kilometers in length, including 11.6 kilometers for Osino, 6.1 kilometers for Anyinam, 10.6 kilometers for Enyiresi, and 13.5 kilometers for the Konongo project.

Following the clearance of the road alignment, contractors are now constructing culverts, bridges, and box culverts, as well as beginning earthworks.

Contractors at the Osino and Anyinam project sites believe illicit miners’ actions are complicating their operations.

Contractors at the Konongo bypass project site are also coping with marshy regions as they proceed with site-clearing work.

The Ministry of Roads and Highways has stated that it will take action to remove illegal miners who have taken over areas of the project sites.

The four bypasses are now being built by eight local contractors, and the Ministry of Roads and Highways has expressed its satisfaction with the work thus far.

During his assessment of current work at the project locations, the Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, expressed pleasure.

He vowed the government’s commitment to overcoming obstacles by providing financial resources for the project.

The construction of the bypasses is projected to minimize travel time, vehicular traffic, and highway accidents.

The Roads Minister also underlined the importance of upgrading important trunk roads around the country in order to save lives and relieve motorists of travel stress.
