Ghana is about to launch a scheme that will automate the collecting of tolls on major roadways without the involvement of people.

Road toll collection after its reintroduction in 2023, according to Minister of Roads Kwesi Amoako Atta, will only be done electronically.

The minister also revealed that when road tolls are reinstated in 2023 following a one-year break, they will be hiked by at least 50%.

When road tolls are implemented in 2023, the government has plans to eliminate the human element from the collection process.
