In the second half of this year, Road Infrastructure is expected to see a major boost nationwide upon the resumption of cocoa roads as well as commencement of other road projects. That’s according to the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.

“It will be recalled that Cocoa road projects were discontinued for audit and re-scoping and proper alignment of funds to execute them. Upon completion of this exercise, some road projects have been terminated, others re-scoped and others handed over to the proper agencies such as highways and urban roads to execute them.” The Minister of Information said this when he briefed the media on Sunday, July 21, 2019, in Accra.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said funding is now also being availed for the commencement of  projects with the assurance that contractors can actually be paid for works done.

Adding that “It is expected that over 3billion cedis of cocoa roads are set to commence under the new program in cocoa growing areas across the country.”

Other road projects funded through the central government budget and road fund are expected to pick up during the year.

This he said includes the LEKMA and other roads which have already been given out on contract with contractors already mobilizing to site.
