Work Progresses On Kejetia/Central Market Project

Construction work on phase one of the US$298 million Kejetia/Central Market redevelopment project is steadily progressing.


It is expected to be ready in January 2018, and the contractors have given strong indication that the scheduled date would not be missed.


Mr. Carlos Gala, Project Manager of Messrs Contracta Engineeering Limited, the Brazilian contractors awarded the job, said they had already done about 30 per cent of the work.

He told the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), Mr. Kojo Bonsu, during an inspection visit that this involved foundation works, erection of market structures and lorry parking area.

The project is being funded by the Ghana government and meant to reduce the severe congestion at the central market.

It comes with a fire station, clinic, crèche, stores, modern bus terminal and other facilities.

The MCE, accompanied by the leadership of the traders’ association, inspected one of the two-storey market structures, which is nearing completion and the bus terminal.

Mr. Gala said phase two of the project, involving the reconstruction of the central market would commence as soon as they finished with the phase one.

Mr. Bonsu expressed satisfaction with the pace and quality of work done and said the project was dear to the people because it would significantly boost business activities in the metropolis.
