The flyover which is the longest and highest in West Africa, the President said will relieve over 200, 000 motorists who ply the Circle stretch daily.

“This is the longest flyover and the highest in West Africa…please note I said flyover, the longest bridge is in Lagos, Nigeria but the longest and highest flyover is in Accra, Ghana,” Mr Mahama said.

Speaking during the inauguration of the three-tier interchange project, Mr Mahama said: “With the opening of this interchange, we believe that several thousand more jobs will be created as a result of the trade and economic activity that this project will facilitate.

Construction of the three-tier interchange at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra started in October, 2013.

The 74.88 million euro project was jointly financed with credit from the Brazilian Government and the Ghana Government.
