The road which has been in the limelight recently for all the bad reasons was expected to receive major rehabilitation works in the first quarter of 2019.

The project was expected to include a five-lane dual carriageway with six interchanges, including three new ones at Community 18, Teshie Link and Dzorwulu, and the remodelling of others.
