Former president John Mahama has promised to dualize of some major roads in Ghana when given the nod rule Ghana again.
He made the announcement during the the launch of the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) fundraising campaign while commiserating victims of the Tuesday’s fatal crash at Dompoase, near Elmina which left 35 persons dead.
According to the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, to reduce road accidents in the future, some major roads like the Accra-Aflao, Accra-Kumasi, and Accra-Cape Coast roads will all be dualized.
“There are some major roads that need widening, yes, and the NDC has already announced its plans to do that. These include the Accra-Aflao, Accra-Kumasi, and Accra-Cape Coast roads, which will all be dualized. Priority will also be given to the early completion of the Eastern corridor road,” he said.
Mahama also used the opportunity to caution Ghanaian motorists to be mindful of the way they drive.
“In the interim, the public is reminded that road safety is a way of life that can be achieved by observing basic safety precautions on speeding, wrongful overtaking, fatigue and distractive driving, while passengers are expected to assume frontline roles by speaking up against driver misbehaviour,” he said.
