The Ministry of Roads and Highways (MRH) has responded to public and media concerns about potholes that have appeared on some roads in the country due to recent heavy rains.
The Ministry says that it is working hard to expand the nation’s road network and maintain existing ones on a regular and timely basis.
“The rainy season always causes some damage to some old roads which are then quickly fixed through the Ministry’s emergency maintenance programme,” a statement said.
It added “The Ministry wants to assure the public that steps are being taken to fix critical sections of roads that have deteriorated throughout the country because of the rains.
“For example, in Accra, maintenance works are currently underway at these locations – Teshie Tsui Bleoo Road and Fertilizer Road.”
The Ministry advises motorists and the public to follow the traffic management and safety measures put in place around the locations where these works are being done.
“The Ministry remains committed to providing a well-maintained road infrastructure that meets the needs of Ghanaians,” the statement emphasized.
