The Ghanaian government has signed the concession agreement for the construction of the Accra Sky Train Project at the sidelines of the ongoing African Investment Forum, on Monday.
The deal means feasibility studies, spanning a period of nine months to determine the bankability of the project will commence, with the investors assuring that the first station for the Accra Sky Train project will be opened in 9 months.
Present at the ceremony was President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo, describing it said it as “a happy day for Ghana and her good people,” adding that it was a “critical step towards the consummation of this project.”
“That is what we are hoping for so that the people of Ghana benefit from the progress and the relief that a modern system of transport in our capital city is going to bring,” he added.
The President thanked the SkyTrain Consortium for putting together the wherewithal that is allowing this project to go forward.
The Accra Sky Train, according to him, “is meeting an important infrastructural need, and hopefully the step that is being taken today, that is signing the concession agreement, is bringing the project to much nearer conclusion. That is what we are hoping for so that the people of Ghana benefit from the progress and the relief that a modern system of transport in our capital city is going to bring.”
