Road Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Atta has promised that government will complete 6,000 kilometres of roads and build 120 bridges by the end of its tenure in 2024.
This promise comes on the back of the declaration of 2020 as the “Year of Roads” which actually did not manifest as clearly as it was touted.
Speaking at the Information Ministry in Accra, The Road Minister promised the government’s resolve to fix all roads including town roads, cocoa roads, Sinohydro roads, and those under other critical projects.
“Between 2021 and 2024, we have programmed to do 11,000 kilometres of road. Out of which we are convinced and confident that 6,000 would have seen total completion with the remaining 5,000 being at various levels of completion. This is what has been put forward in the road sector by President Akufo-Addo.”
The mister also promised the government’s resolve to construct 20 interchanges across the country by the end of 2024.
“Mark me down, by 2024, 20 interchanges will likely be completed. By the end of our second term, 20 interchanges in our country would have been built, we have estimated 25, but we are convinced and sure, and we know what we are about…because we have programmed whatever we are doing, and we would have had about 25 interchanges in our country. This has never happened in any administration since independence”, the Roads Minister assured.
