Ghana - Transportation

Metadata Updated: July 12, 2021

The evaluation of investments in the road infrastructure of Ghana has three main components: 1. Recalculation of the Economic Rates of Return (ERRs) for the project using Highway Design and Management (HDM-4). The results of the HDM-4 analysis show the ERR of the N1 Highway is 22.6 percent; the ERR of the Trunk Road Activity is 4.9 percent; and the overall ERR for the Feeder Roads Activity is 0.4 percent.

  1. Performance evaluation of the roads investments,, including studying road maintenance practices, who is using the roads and whether reductions in transportation costs are shared with users. Key results include: (1) Road upgrades led to reduced transportation costs, including major reductions in traffic congestion on the N1; (2) there is some evidence of increased competition in freight and passenger transport, through an increase in the frequency of service and more modes of transport, but (3) road maintenance needs in Ghana far exceeds funds available for maintenance, which may limit the sustainability of the investments in the longer term.

  2. Impact evaluation using satellite imagery and secondary survey data. Results show that communities located along improved roads experienced greater asset growth compared to similar communities along roads that were not improved.
