New Roads To Be Tolled – Finance Minister

Kenneth Nana Yaw Ofori-Atta, the minister of finance, has given notice that new roads being built by the government in collaboration with investors will be tolled.

When he addressed the mid-year budget review on the floor of Parliament on Monday, July 25, he made this clear.

The tolls will also be used to pay contractors and offer equity for investors, Mr. Ofori-Atta said without holding back.

In the 2022 budget statement and government’s financial strategy unveiled on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, tolls on the nation’s public roadways were eliminated.

“It is true that more roads have been repaired or are being repaired during the past five years than at any other comparable time in our country’s history.
