Elmina Harbour expansion nears end
The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, inspected ongoing construction works on the Elmina Fishing Harbour expansion project two days ago.
The 30-month program started on August 1, 2020, following the sod cutting ceremony conducted by President Akufo-Addo.
During the visit, the Minister for Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, informed the President that the project is currently 91% complete, following completion of:
- south breakwater,
- north breakwater,
- scour and ploughing,
- land reclamation works.
The main goals of the Elmina Fishing Port Rehabilitation and Expansion Project are securing adequate facilities, berthing space and creating a deep marine access, ensuring the durability of the Elmina harbour.
