Cabinet considered the decision for concrete roads after the head pastor of the Light House Chapel, Bishop Dag Heward Mills proposed to the Vice President to consider the use of concrete for road constructions in Ghana.

The Vice President made this known at a dedication ceremony at the Tehilla Temple in Accra

He said: "Why is it that we are not building our roads with concrete and rather doing all this asphalt, bitumen stuff which the roads get washed away after two seasons.

"You look at Tema Motorway which was built with concrete and it is lasting almost 50 years. Since 2014, in India, they have a policy to only build concrete roads because it works out much cheaper.

"So I said let me bring this to my bosses and we have been discussing this as recently as last week and Bishop Dag, I will let you into it, cabinet did decide last week that we should move towards concrete roads as a country.

"And they are going to do the Tema steel works roads as the pilot roads for concrete roads in this country.”
