Work Underway on Ghana’s Second International Airport

8333963746_e0ebc87b06_zGhana is on the road to getting a second international airport as President John Dramani Mahama on Tuesday cut the sod for the commencement of the expansion work to begin on Tamale Airport. Speaking at the function, Mahama said the airport would serve international flights, adding that work on the $100 million project was expected to be completed in September 2015.

According to the president, the first phase of the project consisted of the extension of the runway from the current 2,480 meters to about 3,940 meters as well as installation of a lighting system to accommodate larger aircrafts.

The project is being undertaken by a Brazilian construction firm, Queiroz Galvao, which is also constructing the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange in Accra, the capital of Ghana.

The project, when completed, would spare the Muslim pilgrims who go through hustling and bustling from the northern part of the country to Accra to board a plane to Mecca.
