Road Bridges in Ghana
The purpose of the project is to improve and strengthen transport infrastructure in northern Ghana, thereby contributing to economic growth and poverty reduction. This includes the construction of six bridges, as well as the construction and upgrading of approach roads and rehabilitation roads between major towns. The project will substantially lower transport costs, enhance access to markets, and connect the northern regions to neighbouring countries and southern parts of Ghana. Furthermore, the project will significantly improve road safety and mitigate the effects of climate-change-related seasonal flooding.
