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

Reports suggest that there is an ongoing activity along the 23 km stretch, which aims to connect the Greater Accra Region with the Eastern Region.

Initially budgeted at GH¢195 million and funded by the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) and the Government of Ghana, the project was originally slated for completion within 24 months after President Akufo-Addo initiated it in July 2022.

However, the government’s IMF bailout request and subsequent debt restructuring caused a pause in construction, impacting local residents and commuters.

Local residents have expressed relief at the project’s resumption but emphasize the need for swift completion to alleviate health and economic challenges posed by the road’s poor condition.

Commuters have voiced concerns about health risks due to the road’s uneven surface and inadequate drainage.

Nicholas Tieku, the project site engineer, confirmed that funding has been secured from the construction firm, enabling work to resume. He also provided updated timelines for project completion and outlined the ongoing scope of activities.
