Accra, July 21, GNA – Government has announced plans to start road infrastructural development in the second half of the year, amounting to three billion cedis.

The road projects are expected to see a major boost nationwide upon the resumption of the cocoa roads projects.

It will be recalled that cocoa road projects were discontinued for audit and re-scoping and proper alignment of funds to execute them.

Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister, announced this at a media briefing in Accra on Sunday.

He said upon completion of the audit exercise, some road projects have been terminated and others re-scoped, while others have been handed over to the proper agencies such as Highways and Urban Roads to execute them.

He said funding is now being availed for the commencement of those projects, with the assurance that contractors would be paid for works done.

He said more than over three billion cedis of cocoa roads are set to commence under the new programme in cocoa growing areas across the country.

Other road projects as funded through the Central Government budget and road fund are expected to pick up during the year, he said.

He said the LEKMA and other roads have already been given out on contract with contractors already mobilising to site.
