Project justification

The Greater Accra Region in Ghana is growing at 4% per year and this means that the population will double in 16 years. The expansion of the city’s size has made it difficult for the municipal authorities to meet the service demands of its residents. Traffic in Accra is characterized by heavy congestions, weak implementation of traffic management measures and inadequate facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, resulting in high accident rates.

The Streets of Accra Project aims to resurface approximately 120 km of roads in the capital city of Accra to improve driving conditions and ease traffic circulation tackling the existing poor condition of selected streets, improving the traffic and the quality of life in the neighbourhoods in the Accra Metropolitan Region.

Scope of Works

QGMI scope of work includes the following:

  • Paving and resurfacing of roads in the municipality of Accra, including drainage, relocation of public service infrastructure and horizontal signaling on selected streets or avenues as requested by the Client.

The roads rehabilitation is being carried out in line with the IFC Environmental and Social Performance Standards. The Project is expected to lead to reduction of noise levels and air emissions as a result of improved flow of traffic and lower congestion.

Integrated Waste Management

At QGMI, we plan to adopt an integrated waste management approach, by assessing the various waste streams and adopting an approach of waste management. Our organic wastes are segregated, and a designed composter treats them. The result of the organic waste management can be applied to our reforestation projects.

Accugrade GPS Control System

We use a GPS technology to increase our productivity in earthmoving and grading processes. This Control System allows operators to grade more precisely and faster, which translates into higher productivity, lower operating costs, and a well-done work.

SAE (Electronic Monitoring System)

The Electronic Monitorig System was developed internally by the IT team, with the aim of monitoring the development of activities and working hours of workers and teams in real time, reducing access time to performance indicators for strategic decision making. The system, which is available in Portuguese, English, and Spanish, works via smartphone by reading QR Codes affixed to equipment and on workers’ credentials. It works even where there is no internet available, as data can be stored in the phone’s memory and transferred when there is a Wi-Fi or 4G network signal. It improves cost management, productivity control and contributes to environmental sustainability.
