The Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Attah has directed contractors working on the expansion of the Tema motorway roundabout to consider working in the night so as to reduce traffic at the roundabout.
He made this known during a working visit to the Tema motorway roundabout together with his two deputies, Kwabena Owusu Aduomi and Anthony Karbo officials from the ministry and the Members of Parliament for Tema East and Tema West, Daniel Titus-Glover and Kofi Brako respectively.
The Tema roundabout expansion project is being financed by Meridian Port Services as part of its corporate social responsibility at a cost of 28million Ghana cedis.
The Minister and his entourage were briefed by the Ing. Kwabena Binpong from Associated consultant limited who lamented the level of indiscipline some drivers exhibited on the road.
The Minister of Road and Highways directed that as it is the practice in the outside world contractors should endeavour to work full time at night to reduce the traffic situation at the roundabout.
The CEO of Meridian Services Mohammed Samara gave his outfit’s assurance to the Minister that his directive would be carried through but urged motorists to exercise patience.
