Project Milestones


ESG Impact

This project is a top priority for the city because of the heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic congestion at the CBD. The CBD is made up of the Kumasi Central Markets (+30,000 shops), Adum (+5,000 Stalls) and the Kejetia Mall (+8,000 stalls). However, the city has only 108 consciously designed parking spaces to accommodate all vehicles entering the CBD. This has resulted in on-street parking hence heavy vehicular traffic congestion. Thus, it increases the cost (i.e. time and fuel) of transacting business at the CBD and discourages shoppers from coming to the CBD to patronize goods hence affecting the profit margins of the traders. It also has the potential to generate revenue for the development of the city.


The project is going to benefit drivers (commercial and private), traders at the CBD and shoppers that patronize goods and services at CBD as well as the City Authorities. Over 1,500,000 people will be positively impacted by the project.
