Addressing Journalists in Accra, Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah announced that the scope of works to be undertaken as part of the project includes the rehabilitation of roads in the following towns:

Mr. Nkrumah said in addition, several key activities would be undertaken under the Priority Road Infrastructure Projects.
