The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, presented a detailed document to parliament on Friday, February 18, 2022, detailing the number of roads built by the Akufo-Addo-led government between 2017 and 2021.
The grand total of all the road networks across the regions is 4,263km, the document revealed.
“It covers all the 16 regions of our country, and we have also gone further to itemize all the road activities that constitute that total number.
Government is well aware of the contributions of good road networks to the country’s development and is making the necessary investments.
President Akufo-Addo earlier declared 2022 as the third year of roads.
In a tweet said “Roads, roads and more roads. It’s the #YearOfRoads,” he briefly stated.
Describing the year as a “boom in road sector”, he disclosed that nine highways, seven bridges and five interchanges will be constructed.
