BOUNDARY AND ADMINISTRATIVE AREA

AMA is made up of eleven sub metros namely Ablekuma Central, Ablekuma North, Ablekuma South, Ashiedu Keteke, Ayawaso Central, Ayawaso East, Ayawaso West- Wuogon,La, Okaikoi North, Okaikoi South and Osu Klottey.
The southern boundary of the Metropolis of Accra is the Gulf of Guinea from Gbegbeese to the Mukwe Lagoon near Regional Maritime Academy. The boundary continues along the Maritime Road to join the Accra-Tema road to Nungua Police Station Barrier. It turns right to the Ashiaman road till the Railway overhead Bridge on the Motorway and continues to Mile Post 9 1/2.

From here the boundary continues to the road between the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS) and the Accra Teachers’ Training College (ATRACO), westwards crossing the Accra-Aburi Road to the University of Ghana behind the \Great Hall to Kisseman and  Christian Village to join the Accra Nsawam Road at the Achimota Brewery Road Junction.

It turns left for 500m to the Aayeayeefee Street junction and through the Aayeayeefee Street to the Bridge over the Achimota Stream, then turns right along the stream to the high tension lines to the Achwilage Street and through Achwilage Street to the range of the Awoshie Hills and turns left again along the hills to the boundary between Kokorko (Ga District) and Awoshie (Accra Metropolis).

Notwithstanding these boundaries, there are however some conflict points with adjoining district assemblies, namely the Ga District Authority (GDA) and the Tema Municipal Authority (TMA). 

It must be emphasised that the presence of the conflict points has led to shrinking size of AMA boundaries (de-facto) and loss of revenue. There is also conflict between the Assemblies concerned, which will impede collaborative efforts for development.

Table 1 below shows the conflict points along the boundaries of AMA.
