Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Atta has directed contractors working on major roads in the country not to spare any encroachments on road reservations.

This was after some property owners encroached on bridges and other road projects.

Speaking after inspection of ongoing projects at Tema and Accra, Mr. Amoako Atta said his Ministry will not be delayed by any organization or individual who tries not to cooperate with them in their reconstruction agenda.

He said good road network is a requisite for national development, hence the quest by government to work on all roads across the country.

The Minister’s first point of call was Tema Community 12, where he inspected the construction of a 40-meter composite bridge that leads to Klangon.

He also inspected works on the La Beach Road which begins from Independence Square in Accra to Tema, the dualisation of the East Legon Police Station to Adgringanor road and the dualisation of the Nanakrom road to Santor.

At all the sites visited, construction was ongoing feverishly. At East Legon, the Minister was not happy about encroachment on aramsar site which he said, might cause accidents on that stretch.

He asked the MCE for the area to take action against those who have encroached on the roads to make way for a smooth project.

In an interaction with the Minister at the La Beach Road Project, the Project Director said due to the COVID-19 pandemic, work has delayed, but gave assurance that the project will be completed as scheduled.

The Minister who rounded up his tour at Nanakrom in the Adentan Municipality described work done by the contractors as satisfactory, and asked them to work day and night to complete the project.
