Musician Ephraim and some number of motorists refusing to pay toll on the Tema motorway is escalating as more road users join the campaign to get the potholes fixed in order to stop avoidable accidents on the stretch.
Ephraim revealed during an interview with Andy Dosty on HitzFm, DayBreak Hitz that, he and some few musicians will be going to lorry stations around tema to campaign against paying of tax.
“We are coming with something and we will campaign against paying tolls. If we stop, the government will fix our roads. Ephraim stated.
Many have joined the campaign to intensify the pressure on government to fix the road in order to save lives.
The Motorway Expansion Project
Government has announced the motorway will be expanded from the current four lanes to six lanes soon.
The project, which is expected to be completed within an expected 30-month period, is financed at a cost of $57 million by the Japanese government through the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The project is under the West African Corridor Development Growth Ring (WAGRIC) Master Plan implementation, and carried out by Messrs Shimizu-Dai Nippon Joint Venture (SDJV), with CTI Engineering International Co. Ltd as consultants.
It is expected to address the perennial traffic congestion within the enclave when completed.
It is not clear whether the expansion project has delayed the rehabilitation of the highway.
