The Minister along with his two deputies, the Urban Roads Director, the Director for the Ghana Highways Authority, and other agency heads including engineers with the ministry inspected an ongoing road expansion on the La – Teshie road.

As part of the expansion, the steel bridge at Kpeshie is being reconstructed to contain the three-lane expansion.

Speaking in an interview with the media, the Minister for Roads and Highways, Hon Kwasi Amoako-Attah hinted that the project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023.

On his part, the Director of Urban Roads, Ing Gotfrey Amoh explained the scope of work and appealed to the public to cope with the inconveniences as it’s for the good of the people.
