Construction on the Dome-Berekusu-Kitaase road project has restarted after a temporary halt due to Ghana’s IMF bailout program.

Sources indicate that work is now progressing on the 23 km route, aimed at connecting the Greater Accra Region to the Eastern Region.

Initially funded at GH¢195 million by the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) and the Government of Ghana, the project aimed for completion within 24 months of President Akufo-Addo’s groundbreaking ceremony in July 2022.

However, the government’s IMF bailout request and subsequent debt restructuring caused a suspension, inconveniencing road users and commuters.

Residents interviewed by the media welcomed the project’s recommencement but stressed the need for prompt completion to address health and economic challenges caused by the road’s poor condition.

Commuters have reported health issues due to the road’s uneven surface and insufficient drainage.

Project site engineer Nicholas Tieku confirmed that the construction firm has secured funding to resume work and provided updated timelines and project details.
