The government has released an amount of GHc150 million for payment to road contractors undertaking pothole patching across the country.

The amount is part of the first quarter releases from the Ministry of Finance to the Ministry of Roads and Highways.

This is contained in a press release dated February 15 and signed by Head of Public Relations at the Ministry of Roads and Highways, Nasir Ahmad Yartey.

“The intervention is to enable the Ghana Highways Authority and the Department of Urban Roads to take advantage of the dry season to undertake routine pothole patching activities on some major roads which deteriorated last year due to heavy rains,” the release explained.

According to the Ministry, “it is hopeful that this timely intervention will result in smoother road surfaces, help reduce the risk of accidents and prolong the lifespan of our road infrastructure.”

“The Ministry of Roads and Highways wishes to reiterate its commitment to addressing all road network challenges across the country and encourages all to cooperate with the Ministry as we strive to improve the national road network,” Mr Yartey wrote.
