Mr. Amoako-Attah “we will emprove on the feeder road aspects of our total road networks and that will mean taking seriously the process of using the road fund, which is set up for routines and periodic maintenance.
The minister-designate said on Wednesday February 1, when he was being vetted by the Appointment Committee of Parliament.
“If we use that fund properly, we will be able to put a lot of these feeder roads into good shape, obviously for economic development and to promote [trade] by bringing foodstuffs and other cash crops that are locked in the hinterlands.
“It is important that we sharpen our competence in road toll collection because road tolls are the second highest contributor to the Road Fund. The highest contributor to that fund is the fuel levy. If you take all the toll booths in the country as at now, we have 35 of them nationwide and out of this 35, it is only four that are automated and the four are the Ngleshie Amanfrom, Accra Plaza , Tema Plaza and the Amasaman booth.
“What I will do to improve on the toll collection is to improve on the automation of many of them as possible. I will ensure that those that can be automated will be automated to improve toll collection.”
