Some motorists and passengers are excited that the newly constructed tunnel which connects East Legon to the Spintex Road in Accra has been opened to traffic.
According to them, it has already eased traffic at the once dreaded tunnel significantly.
For years the narrow tunnel used by thousands of motorists increased travel times which caused unbearable stress for many.
Although the new tunnel has been opened to traffic, the Ghana Highway Authority has said it has not been officially opened to traffic.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Authority, Diana Seade said, the tunnel was opened to allow the construction company, Sonitra Construction, to complete work on other parts of the road.
