The government has revealed that the Accra-Tema motorway which is set to be rebuilt will have six lanes.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Graphic.com.gh, the 19-kilometer Tema Motorway which is in a very bad condition will be rebuilt soon.
Mr Kwasi Amoako Atta, the minister for roads and highways, made the announcement during his visit to some project sites in Accra made the announcement.
He said the issue of encroachment was becoming rampant and was hindering development and industrialisation.
The minister then cautioned property development agencies and individuals to desist from building on and close to road reserved zones.
He said when government begins the rebuilding, structures in unauthorised places will get demolished.
Mr Amoako Atta stated that government would deal ruthlessly with institutions and individuals who flout the law.
He again noted that lawlessness had become common among Ghanaians and that government through the appropriate authorities will crack the whip.
The minister reiterated government's commitment to developing infrastructure such as roads and highways in the country.
He urged citizens to comply with directives and support government to be able to bring development as Prez. Akufo-Addo promised during his campaign.
The Accra-Tema Motorway, initially built in 1965, aimed to transform Tema into an industrial hub.
But potholes, encroachment and improper situation of infrastructure along the motorway have made it dangerous for human lives.
Many accidents have been recorded on the road, necessitating its rebuilding to befit a proper motorway.
