It is in line with this regulation that Ghana Highway Authority has set up the Right to Information (RTI) Unit, which is being spearheaded by the Public Affairs Division, assisted by two RTI officers who have been trained to process applications for access to information
The Authority is therefore positioned to receive and process requests as well as make basic information available to the general public through the Public Affairs Division.
