Ghana: Boankra Inland Port Ready Nov 2024 – Concessionaire

The Boankra Integrated Logistics Terminal (BILT), popularly known as the Boankra Inland Port project in the Ejisu Municipality in the Ashanti Region will be completed and handed over to the government in November 2024, the Chief Executive Officer of Ashanti Ports Services Limited (APSL), Mr Isaac Afum and concessionaire to the project, has disclosed.

Mr Isaac Afum disclosed this here on Thursday when he led officials from the APSL to witness the progress of work on the $330 million project which had been stalled for nearly two decades, due to many teething problems including mobilisation.

Mr Affum said the Ghanaian contractors on the project, Justmoh Construction Limited, was within schedule and that barring any challenges, the project would be handed over on schedule.

Last Thursday’s visit to the site saw earth-moving machinery busily working on the terminal area where about 80 per cent of the filling has been completed.

When completed it would have among other things, an inland clearance depot, customs bonded and unbonded estates, commercial areas, such as banks, offices and trading facilities, vehicle parking and light industrial areas and an administration block complex.

The project would provide services for importers and exporters in the middle and the northern parts of the country and also act as a major conduit for the efficient transportation of transit traffic to and from our neighbouring landlocked countries of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.
