Closure of Mallam-Kasoa road to last five months – Minister

Next week’s closure of a section of the Mallam-Kasoa Highway will last at least five months, Deputy Minister of Roads and Highways, Isaac Adjei Mensah has stated.

The Ghana Highways Authority has announced, that portion of the N-1 Highway will be closed to vehicular traffic on Wednesday, May 30, to enable construction works to start on a grade separated interchange which will link the Accra-Cape Coast highway to the West Hills Mall under construction.

The interchange, described by engineers as an underpass, has become necessary after a traffic impact assessment jointly conducted by Ghana Highway Authority and Delico Property Investments, the developer of the West Hills Mall.

Speaking on the Super Morning Show, Tuesday, Mr. Adjei Mensah said the road will remain closed until the last quarter of the year.

He said a diversion has been created at Dunkonah Junction and Mandela, towards the Weija Shoprite Supermarket. The Authority says the diversion does not affect traffic moving in the opposite direction from Accra or Mallam towards Kasoa, as that section of the road will remain open to motorists.

The interchange is expected facilitate the free, safe and uninterrupted flow of motor traffic on that stretch of the Accra-Cape Coast Highway while providing safe access to the mall for shoppers, pedestrians, mall tenants and service trucks.
