They have threatened to hit the courts if the monies are not paid them.
But speaking in an interview with Citi Business News, the Director at the Department of Feeder Roads, George Aidoo said all monies owed the contractors will soon be paid.
‘’The fact of the matter is that the ministry of finance is taking steps to pay the monies and we have had series of meetings with them and government is taking steps to address this once and for all.’’
He adds that some challenges have hampered the full payment of the debts but was hopeful it will be resolved.
Commenting on the threat by the contractors to hit the courts for redress, Mr Aidoo said it was their right to do so.
