The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has noted that motorists who ply tolled roads will no longer be required tax after the approval of the 2022 budget.
“Government has abolished all tolls on public roads and bridges. This takes effect immediately the Budget is approved,” he announced in Parliament on Wednesday.
“Over the years, the tolling points have become unhealthy market centres, led to heavy traffic on our roads, lengthened travel time from one place to another, and impacted negatively on productivity.
“The congestion generated at the tolling points, besides creating these inconveniences, also leads to pollution in and around those vicinities,” Ken Ofori-Atta said.
