President Nana Akufo-Addo has commissioned the first phase of the Obetsebi Lamptey interchange.

The commissioning is one of his key agenda as he begins his two-day Greater Accra Regional campaign tour.

The $17 million project is expected to significantly reduce traffic and congestion on the stretch which records 60,000 vehicular movements daily.
