Kumasi Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project

According to project documents, the Kumasi Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project aims to “to improve mobility, accessibility, and safety along selected corridors, and improve planning capacity for sustainable urban growth in the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area.” The project is made up of three components. The first component will implement a bus rapid transit (BRT) system, which covers construction and upgrading of relevant infrastructure. The second will help to facilitate a smooth transition to a new mass transit system, including the development of new reforms and frameworks, and support for current transport operators to develop the skills to flourish under the new BRT system. The final component will help to develop plans and policies to complement the new mass transit system, such as creating more public spaces and looking at how policies and practices used in this project can be applied elsewhere to cities of a similar size.
