Roads Ministry to Ghanaians: Stop defacing public road infrastructure with adverts

The ministry also called on the Ghana Police Service to ensure enforcement of LI 2180 to maintain the roads in the country

The Ministry of Roads and Highways has bemoaned the incessant practice of defacing public infrastructure with adverts and notices in the country.

According to the Ministry, the practice has resulted in devaluing the country’s road infrastructure, distracting and misinforming drivers, and reducing the beauty of the environment.

A statement issued by the Transport Ministry on Wednesday (8 November), said the practice is unacceptable and contravenes provisions of the Ghana Standard Authority’s advertisement specifications for outdoor signs.

“It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Roads and Highways that the public road infrastructure across the country is continuously being defaced with adverts and notices.”

“This practice is unacceptable and contravenes provisions of the Ghana Standards Authority’s advertisement specifications for outdoor signs (GS 847-2019) in section 5, sections 11 and 15 of Act 540 and section 188 of LI2180,” the statement said.

Below is the full statement:
