99% of Atonsu-Lake Road is finished.

 By the end of February, the government will be able to take possession of the project from the contractors, China Henan International Cooperation Group (CHICO), for use by pedestrians on the first phase of the Atonsu-Lake Road restoration.

The project includes the construction of a lorry terminal at Dompoase, which has already been finished, as well as the dualization of the road from the Brewery Junction, also known as the “Bruway” in Kumasi.
The terminal has been open for business for the past four months after commercial truckers migrated from their temporary truck stop near the Kumasi South Hospital, often known as the “Agogo Hospital” region, to make space for the road’s expansion.
Even before the project is finished and officially turned over, there is much less traffic than usual on the road, notably at the hospital’s entrance crossroads.
The entire one lane of the road has been finished and is open to traffic right now. Once the other portion of the road is finished as well, the stretch, which is well known for its constant traffic congestion, will no longer exist.


The largest drainage system in the city and the largest portion of the project’s labor were the building of a bridge on the Susan River and a pedestrian bridge, both of which have already been finished.
The Susan’s drainage system is almost done as well. However, it was delayed because of a significant amount of rain that fell during the wet season and damaged some of the major waterway’s construction.

Finishing Touches

Currently, the contractor is applying bitumen to the road’s surface. Later, the work on the street lighting system and the dressing of the pedestrian walkway along the route will be completed.
These were discovered during a working visit to certain road improvement sites in the Ashanti Region by the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, the Roads Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, and some engineers from the Ghana High Authority.
Both the Municipal Chief Executive for Asokwa, Akwannuasah Gyimah, and the Member of Parliament for Bosomtwe, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, expressed pleasure with the project’s progress.

The 2nd and 3rd Phase

The Lake Road’s second and third sections, which extend from Dompoase to Abidjan Nkwanta and end at Lake Bosometwe, are likewise making good progress.
Drains and bridges are being built on the Road by the contractor, Kofi Job Construction Limited, who is currently on the job site.
Additionally, all expansion work from Dompoase to Aputuogya has been finished.
In light of Lake Bosomtwe’s enormous tourism potential, the government was eager to dualize the road leading up to its shores, according to the Ashanti Regional Minister.
