The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Attah has directed the cessation of road tolls effective today, Thursday, November 18.
The directive by the Roads Minister contradicts claims by the Finance Minister that the decision to abolish all roads tolls will only take effect when the 2022 Budget is passed by Parliament.
A statement signed by the Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta said personnel of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service will be on hand to provide security at the toll locations from today.
“Motorists are kindly advised to approach the locations with caution and observe all safety measures that will be put in place.
“The motoring public will be advised of further measures in due course.”
