In October 2013, President Mahama said the Accra Tema Motorway will be constructed at a cost of US$100 million with funding from the Brazilian government.
On November 9, 2013, Seth Tekper said we in 2014, the Accra-Tema Motorway rehabilitation and expansion will be considered under a public-private partnership arrangement. He said that it was as part of the 2014 budget statement.
In November 2014, the GPHA Boss said
It is expected that, two berths will be completed by October 2016 paving the way for the final completion in Dec 2018 where, 1.40 kilometer query will be completed by the end of 2018 with a railway terminal and efficient rail and road network.
In November 2015, Seth Tekper said discussions on the project design concept and the draft agreement are on-going with the project proponents. The detailed feasibility studies and designs will commence in 2016. This is in our 2016 Budget read in Parliament.
In February 2016, Hon. Inusah Fuseini said feasibility studies are already proceeding and will give the project sponsors an understanding of the entire cost for the road, which is likely to be effected on a public-private partnership model.
April 2016: “We would have started this work before March ended as promised but we are also concerned about value for money. There are intensive feasibility works on going, but I can assure you that work on Accra-Tema motorway expansion project will start this month"
April 8, 2016, Fiifi Kwetey said an agreement has been reached and very soon the Tema Port will be expanded into six lanes at a cost of US $1.5 Billion
On August 1, 2016, Mr Paul Ansah, GPHA PRO said emphatically that the Tema Port expansion project DOES NOT include the redevelopment of the Tema Motorway interchange project.
So my question is, with these happenings of events, how do the NDC credit the Tema Motorway interchange project a JM legacy? The $100m Brazilian loan wasn't used to fund the project. The JICA grant of $55.6m secured by the Akufo-Addo gov't was used.
