Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has said illegal structures constructed under GRIDCo and ECG transmission lines will be demolished.

The Manhyia South MP said the structures will be demolished to prevent them from causing damage to the company’s transmission lines.

The move comes on the back of damage caused to the 330kV Aboadze-Kumasi transmission lines at Bogoso by a communication tower after it fell on it.

The damage caused to the transmission lines has resulted in power outages in the Ashanti region.

Mr Prempeh was speaking to the media when he toured the Anwomaso substation of the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) in the Oforikrom Municipality.

The Minister who bemoaned encroachment and construction of structures under the transmission lines attributed it to regulatory failure.

He reiterated the need for ECG and GRIDCo to explain to residents in the Ashanti region the cause of power outages in the region.
