The tour was aimed at briefing media practitioners on drainage construction works yet to start at the end of this month to reduce the perennial flooding on the Mallam Junction stretch of the road.

Road diversion for traffic at certain portions and road close will cause slight delays and increase in travelling time at the location to motorist.

Vehicles travelling from Awoshie to Mccharthy Hill will no longer use the overpass to the Mallam Junction and back on the main Sakaman-Mccarthy Hill stretch throughout the construction period.

Engineer from GAMA Sanitation and Water Project, Mr. Gabriel Eniman briefed Journalist during the tour as there were visible road signs indicating road diversion and section on the road where the road will be close to traffic.

The tour lasted for four and half hours as Mr. Gabriel Animan told Journalists the whole project will last for 50 days.

He further noted that the appropriate compensation has been paid for the project to kick start ending of this month, with funding from the World Bank as the whole project will cost GH¢6 million Ghana cedis.
