The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta has charged the six contractors working on the six footbridges on the Madina-Adentan Highway to work day and night in order to meet the given deadline.

Over 190 people were knocked down on the stretch in 2018 due to the lack of footbridges which led to protest by residents.

However, government assured residents in the area of efforts to complete the footbridges by 2019.
