Friday 18 March 2022:  A delegation from The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Ghana and Transaid UK led by Engr Mark Amoamah, President of CILT Ghana (from the front: 3rd from the left), paid a courtesy call on the Acting Director General of National Road Safety Authority, Eng. David Adonteng (in white) and his management team in Accra to engage the Authority on a project being undertaken by Transaid UK in collaboration with CILT Ghana.

Transaid, an International Development Organization founded by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) International is currently partnering CILT Ghana to undertake a 4-year project in Ghana aimed at making the Ghanaian roads safer through the raising of training standards and expanding training capacity for Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) and Passenger Service Vehicle (PSV) Drivers. And there was the need to engage the authority as a major stakeholder in the adoption of the curriculum and training manual as national documents.

Mr. Jason Finch, Project Manager (from the back: 3rd from the right) from Transaid briefed the Authority on the progress made so far in terms of the curriculum and training manual for the project. He confirmed that the theory part of the ”Training of Trainers” programme for the first batch has been completed successfully and are currently undergoing their practical training.

Eng. David Adonteng welcomed the delegation and acknowledged the growing ties between National Road Safety Authority and CILT Ghana. He added that the Authority would continue to engage the Institute to enhance the growing collaborations to ensure that our roads are safer.

Eng. Adonteng hinted that amended version of the Road Traffic Regulation LI 2180 is already in Parliament and hoped that it would be passed into law as soon as possible to ensure the manifestation of some reforms in our road space. He added that Transaid’s project has come at the right time and expressed the Authority’s willingness to adopt the curriculum and training manual as a working document to ensure that our roads are safer than before. He also highlighted some key areas the Authority would be engaging CILT on.

The President of CILT Ghana was of the view that the Institute could team up with the Authority on Road Safety Campaigns during festive seasons. He thanked the Authority for granting the delegation the audience.

Other members from the Authority present were Mr. Daniel Wuaku, Dep. Director, Mr. Alexander Ayatah, Dep. Director, Mr. Martin Afram, Dep. Director in charge of Monitoring and Evaluation, Mr. Wisdom Fiatui, Dep. Director in charge of Audit and Mr. Kingsley Ofei, Assistant Planning Manager.
