The Minister of Road Highways, Joe Gidisu has assured motorist who ply the Apedwa stretch of the Accra-Kumasi road that his outfit is doing everything possible to put that road in good shape.

According to him, currently letters of credit are being procured from the Ministry of Finance to pay contractors to enable them continue work on the road.

The Apedwa stretch has in the past four years been in poor state making traveling on that road an unpleasant experience.

Due to the bumpy nature of the road, more damage is done to most of the cars that use that road while armed robbers in recent times have taken advantage of the slow pace at which cars travel on that road to attack unsuspecting passengers.

However speaking on News Night on Joy fm, on Monday, Hon. Joe Gidisu who is also the MP for Central Tongu in the Volta Region stated that government was aware of the plight of motorists and sympathysies on the said road adding that pending the funds from the Ministry the contractor in the mean time has been asked to level the road to make traveling on the raod convenient.

He said government is very much committed to completing that road noting that with additional money for the project being secured motorist will soon see the end of their plight.
