Mr Kwasi Amoako Atta the Minister for Roads and Highways, has disclosed that tollbooths across the country will be used as public urinals since the collection of tolls have been abolished by the government.
In the 2022 budget by the Minister, scrapped the collection of tolls and the directive from the Minister caused an immediate cessation of tolls even before the budget was approved by the parliament which the Minority caucus in Parliament described as unlawful.
However, tollbooths since abolishment have been abandoned and this raised concerns with the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) urging the government to demolish the structures for the sake of safety but it appears that the government have different plans for the abandoned structures.
Mr Amoako Atta therefore revealed that the tollbooths will be used for public urinals instead of demolishing these structures.
“We even want to refurbish all tollbooth structures to provide proper and decent washrooms for the use by motorists so that we advised them to desist from that practice where sometimes you see cars stopping on the highway and people getting down to wee-wee as we usually see”, he said.
