The WestPark is well positioned..
  • 7 km from Aboadze Power Park – to be the largest in Africa with over 2,200 MW planned generating capacity by 2021
  • 25 km from Takoradi Port – handles over 70% of Ghana’s exports by volume and is undergoing a major US$410 million
  • 10 km from Ghana’s third largest metropolitan area
  • 10 km from the Ghana Railway – runs regular freight services from Takoradi to Nsuta (130 km north) and urban commuter rail
  • on the N-1 Takoradi-Cape Coast Road – a 1,028 km paved coastal corridor and West Africa’s main transport artery, with expansion to six-lanes due to start this year
  • proximity to the Pra River – Ghana’s second largest river, offering large volumes of water for industrial use
The region’s growing commercial significance was underscored by US$150 million in private investments in 2016 in the building materials sector and an ongoing tender process to attract a world-class port operator to expand Takoradi’s container and bulk handling capacity.
