The Minister of Roads,Kwasi Amoako-Attah, has solicited the collaboration of the 48 Engineers Regiment of the Ghana Armed Forces towards the construction of 5,000 steel bridges to facilitate economic activities nationwide.

The ministry would soon enter into an agreement with the Defence Ministry to enable members of the Regiment to support the rehabilitation of about 150 steel bridge components that had been knocked down.

The Minister said GAF had collaborated well with the Ministry in the past and the military personnel displayed a high level of professionalism, efficiency, discipline and technical prowess in the construction of steel bridges.

He announced last Friday, February 22, 2019, that government was expecting about 200 components of steel bridges from the Czech Republic this year to fix the dilapidated bridges.

He said due to this the Ministry would, therefore, like to rekindle that relationship and partnership towards the country’s infrastructural development.
