It is expected that, when the road is completed, it will bring relief to both motorists and pedestrians. It will reduce vehicle operating costs and reduce travelling time and facilitate the movement of goods and services. It will also serve as an alternative link to Koforidua, the regional capital when coming from Mamfe.
