Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako Atta, has revealed to Members of Parliament that most of the road projects in their advance form will be completed when funds are available.

According to the Roads and Highways Minister who was answering questions on the floor of parliament, completion of road projects will depend on the employers ability to pay for work done so far.

He hinted at the beginning of years that funds in the Road Fund had dry up because of the excessive road contracts award by the previous government and the interest that had to be paid for loans taken from the bank.

His answer was in response to the Member of Parliament for Klottey-Korle, Dr. Zanetor Agyeman Rawlings whon wanted to know when the Abuja/CMB Market road will be completed.

The Minister noted that currently the project is 75 percent completed, the contractors have suspended works as a result of the employers undue delay in paying for work done and the project is financed through the Ghana Road Fund.

The same answers were provided for the Member of Parliament for Kintampo South Felicia Adjei on Jema Township roads which is 15 percent completed.
