TollBooths will be turn to public urinals – Road Minister

Ghana’s Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, has unveiled a new agenda for tollbooths since the collection of road tolls was suspended.

Tollbooths across the country will be repurposed for another public purpose, according to the Honorable member.

A instruction from the sector minister led the abrupt suspension of tolls.

This was in effect even before Parliament had approved the budget. Many people, including the minority in Parliament, considered the conduct to be illegal.

Tollbooths have been abandoned after tolls were abolished.

The National Traffic Safety Authority (NRSA) asked the government to demolish the structures for traffic safety grounds.

The government, on the other hand, appears to have other plans for the abandoned structures.

The tollbooths, according to Mr. Amoako-Attah, will be used as public urinals.

“We even aim to repair all tollbooth structures to provide suitable and decent washrooms for the benefit of motorists,” the minister said.

“This is so that we told them to cease from that habit when sometimes you see cars stopping on the highway and individuals getting down to wee-wee as we usually witness,” he stated emphatically.

The toll booths, according to sources, are still the same as they were in November of last year.
