The Ghanaian Parliament has passed a bill to establish the National Roads Authority (NRA). This new entity aims to streamline the management of Ghana’s national roads by consolidating the three key agencies currently under the Ministry of Roads and Highways: the Ghana Highway Authority, the Department of Urban Roads, and the Department of Feeder Roads.

Hon. Francis Asenso-Boakye, the Minister of Roads and Highways for Ghana, is a strong advocate for the establishment of the NRA. He believes that the passing of the bill will significantly improve the Ministry’s ability to oversee and manage the country’s road network.

According to Hon. Asenso-Boakye, the current structure, which involves multiple agencies working independently, often leads to fragmentation and inefficiencies. The new authority will ensure a more integrated approach, allowing for better planning, execution, and maintenance of road projects.

The consolidation of the three agencies is expected to facilitate the development of a more cohesive and effective road network, which is essential for economic growth and development. By centralizing decision-making and resource allocation, the NRA will be better equipped to address the challenges of maintaining and expanding Ghana’s road infrastructure.

Reports suggest that the NRA will also focus on improving the quality and safety of roads, ensuring that they meet international standards. This is expected to have a positive impact on road safety, reducing the number of accidents and improving the overall driving experience for Ghanaians.
