On Monday, 13 June 2022, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia cut the sod for the construction of a 167-kilometre highway from Tamale to Tatale in the Northern Region.

The massive highway, which has had a significant portion of it untarred for decades forms part of the Eastern Corridor road linking major towns in the Northern, North East, Upper East, Oti, Volta and Greater Accra Regions.

The $150m project will include the provision of socio-economic complementary interventions in the form of schools, boreholes, and clinics within the project communities (Tamale, Mion, Yendi, Zabzugu & Tatale), and has been broken into two lots; lot one being the 61.98km Tatale-Yendi road -61.98km and lot 2 the 106km Yendi-Tamale road. The project is scheduled to be completed in two years .
