The Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, has tasked a seven-member committee to audit all speed ramps on the country’s roads.
He argued that many of the ramps are a nuisance to motorists; insisting that all unauthorized ramps must be removed.
Speaking at an event to inaugurate the Committee, Mr. Amoako–Atta said illegal speed ramps are a danger to motorists hence the call.
“They have become a nuisance on our country. People no longer enjoy driving on our trunk roads, and it has become problematic and a nightmare, particularly to our heavy vehicular drivers.”
Mr. Amoako-Attah also indicated that his outfit will embark on a decongestion exercise to get rid of structures that are situated within the country’s road corridors.
He warned that there will be no leniency in the matter.
“We will go into action, and we are not going to plead with people even though we won’t act arbitrarily,” the minister said.
Mr. Amoako-Attah ultimately said these actions will be in the national interest.
“Let me serve notice to all those who have inundated our streets and the road corridors with kiosks and other unauthorised structures that the interest of the people of this country supersedes any personal interest.”
