The £43m bridge programme, forming a key part of discussions at the third UK-Ghana Business Council held in Accra in October 2019, has been developed to improve connectivity for rural communities enabling quicker, safer and more efficient access to employment, education and healthcare.

British company, Mabey Bridge, has already installed modular steel bridging solutions to more than 150 countries across the world, and has extensive experience in the delivery of comprehensive financed bridging programmes in support of rural and urban infrastructure development.
Over the last month, representatives from the British High Commission also witnessed the signing of a contract between the Ministry of Roads and Highways and BHM that will see the construction of a major road system.
