On the Accra-Tema highway, the government will start an operation to remove damaged toll booths through the Ghana Highways Authority (GHA).
The main booths will be dismantled during the demolition operation, which is expected to cost GH1 million.
The drill follows a fatal collision on the Accra-Tema highway on September 3, 2023, which left one person dead and another seriously hurt.
Everything started when a petroleum truck headed for Tema veered off the road and slammed with a disused toll booth at the Accra end.
Some onlookers who hurried to the scene after hearing the impact claim the truck’s injured driver was brought to the hospital, but the passenger perished there and then.
According to Joseph Atsu Amedzake, Director of Road Safety and Environment at the Highway Authority, plans have been finalized for the tollbooths to be partially removed to make commuter travel considerably simpler.
