The Roads and Highways Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Attah says in as much as issues surrounding the cost of repairing the bridge on the Accra-Tema motorway remain relevant, that can only be ascertained after the project is completed.
According to the sector minister, “all will be done to ensure value for money”.
He gave this assurance when he visited the construction site.
When Citi News asked the minister how much it would cost the taxpayer to construct the bridge, the minister in his response said, “some of your colleagues have asked this question. It is relevant; it’s important, but in crisis like this, cost is immaterial. We have to bring comfort to our people because the motoring public is going through a lot.
He added that “as much as this is important, we are ready to provide whatever is necessary like iron rods, other materials, and cement and after that, we would sit down and put together the cost, but I am assuring you that this project will get value for money”.
