the Ministry of Roads and Highways (MRH) has said its attention has been drawn to concerns being raised by the public and some sections of the media regarding potholes that have emerged on some roads in the country as a result of recent heavy rains.

The Ministry says that generally significant volumes of work are being done to expand the nation’s road network and undertake routine and periodic maintenance on existing ones.

“The rainy season always causes some deterioration to some old roads which are then quickly attended to through the Ministry’s emergency maintenance programme,” a statement said.

It added “The Ministry wishes to assure the public that measures are being put in place to address critical sections of roads which have gone bad throughout the country upon the onset of rains.

“For instance, in Accra, maintenance works are currently ongoing at the following locations – Teshie Tsui Bleoo Road and Fertilizer Road.”

“The Ministry wishes to reiterate its commitment to providing a well-maintained road infrastructure responsive to the needs of Ghanaians,” the statement stressed.
