Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Anyianam-Kumasi Road Rehabilitation Project. It aims at the improvement of road transport between Anyinam and Kumasi. The project should improve the physical conditions of Ghana’s road network, thus helping to remove at least partially. It should help to arrest the further deterioration of the road network, improve the maintenance of the road infrastructure and strengthen the road transport institutions. The project comprises five main components, namely: (1) a three-year programme (1986-88) of rehabilitation and maintenance of the country’s road network; (2) technical assistance to strengthen the planning units in Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) and Department of Feeder Roads (DFR); (3) a bridge repair and maintenance programme; (4) a pilot feeder road programme with DFR; and (5) rehabilitation of about 136 km of the Accra-Kumasi highway.

Project Objectives

The objectives of the overall project are to: (i) strengthen the road agencies under the Ministry of Roads and Highways and revitalize road maintenance operations; (ii) improve transport planning within the country; (iii) protect the existing bridge structures through improved maintenance; (iv) improve access roads to the rural areas; and (v) rehabilitate a section of one of the country’s most important highways.


The main beneficiaries of the project are the users of the Anyianam-Kumasi section, the populations of the project area and economic operators.
