Mr. John Mahama outlined his vision for the future of Ghana’s transport sector, highlighting plans that are already underway to modernize transport terminals and lorry parks. He proposed that the GPRTU could partner with Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies (MMDAs) or private investors to build and maintain these facilities. This partnership, he suggested, would improve the infrastructure and ensure a sustainable revenue mobilization for the sector.

Mahama elaborated on the potential benefits of such collaborations, noting that improved transport terminals would enhance the overall efficiency and safety of road transportation. This, in turn, would lead to better services for passengers and more secure working conditions for drivers. He stressed that modern facilities are essential for accommodating the growing number of vehicles and passengers and for reducing congestion and delays.
