The Minister of Transport, Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, is considering the introduction of cable cars, and shuttle passenger services by sea as alternative means of transport along the coast.
These ideas, if implemented, will be piloted from Tema to Accra and Accra to Takoradi.
Speaking at the mid-year review conference under the auspices of the transport ministry, the minister intimated that these new set of cars will not only improve transportation but also complement government's commitment to adapt to new technologies in the transportation sector.
“The Ministry is considering other alternative transport solutions including pedway, cable car, and shuttle passenger services by sea (from Tema to Accra and Accra to Takoradi along the coast). The cable and pedway systems depend on the use of cables or beams instead of the road space,” he said.
Even before this initiative materializes, a large section of Ghanaians has shared varied reactions to this assurance by the minister.
