Government is dedicating GH¢1 billion to fix traffic lights, erect road signs and paint defaced road markings to improve road safety.

The committee also recommended that ¢6.5 million be allocated to the National Road Safety Commission for public education and training.

The report recommended that the NRSC approved the proposal of the MTTD to enable them remove disabled vehicles from the road, deploy Traffic Cameras Systems to detect and apprehend speed, red-light and related traffic offences.

"Request for an amount of ¢1,05 billion for the road agencies, Ghana Highway Authority, Department of Urban Roads and Department of Feeder Roads to clear the backlog of road signs, road-line markings, traffic signal lights and crash barriers on the national road network,” she said.
