Hammond Larbi, Vice President of the Progressive Road Contractors Association clarified that they are not responsible for the bad condition of roads. He opened the shocking fact that contractors are doing side jobs for maintenance. According to him, irregular government funding is responsible for the current condition.
“I admit some of the contractors do shoddy jobs but contractors largely cannot be blamed for Ghana’s bad roads. Because you take inventories and submit to the ministry and they slash it telling you they lack adequate funds.”
In further question-answer session, Hammond Larbi highlighted that Ghana is still using old technology for construction.
“We are still using old technologies in constructing our roads though there are new technologies coupled with issues of road drainage. The inadequate materials force some contractors to mix rubber with bitumen, so how do you expect the roads to last?”
