This according to a report published by the Ghana Institution of Engineers(GhIE).

The report is titled “Ghana Infrastructure Report Card 2016”.

“The overall grading of roads and bridges, electric power, and potable water infrastructure had a score of D3 representing poor”.

On road infrastructure,  Ing. Adams stated that the sector had a score of 2.79 out of 5 points.

He explained further that this showed that the country’s road infrastructure had little or no ability to withstand the weather pattern. He added that they also have a shorter lifespan compared to international standards.

He therefore, called on the government to look critically at the standard of road construction in the country.

He suggested that the government develops a regular maintenance schedule for already constructed roads since it is one of Ghana’s key infrastructure.

The Ghana Infrastructure Report Card 2016 was launched by the Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Mafo.
