Decongestion Exercise: We’ll clear motorway of all unauthorised structures – Henry Quartey vows

Must Read

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, has vowed to demolish all unauthorised structures along the Tema motorway.

According to him, the illegal structures predominantly along the Spintex-Manet area, contribute to the daily accidents recorded on the motorway.

Taking the “Make Accra Work” campaign to the Ledzokuku municipality, Mr Quartey explained that occupants of the said structures contribute to the heavy flow of traffic in the area and also expressed concern about their illegal use of water and electricity.

“They are using free water, free electricity, insecurity, they contribute to most of the accidents on the motorway because they keep crisscrossing,” Mr Quartey explained.

The Minister led a Special taskforce from the La Dadekotopon Municipal Assembly (LADMA), Ayawaso West Wuogon and the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) to pull down some illegal structures in the area with some given an ultimatum to evacuate the area since the Ledzokuku Assembly had already served them advanced notices.

“A combined Task Force of the La Dadekotopon, Ledzokuku and Ayawaso West Wuogon have begun decongesting the motorway stretch of a number of kiosks. The Ledzokuku Assembly has served them notices since 2019, they are constantly being reminded to vacate the place,” he told the media.

“A place like the Palace Mall, we went there to clear them they even fought us. They started fighting with the task force people. So there, we have decided to cordon off the place which we have given it out to a contractor and the person is yet to do it,” she said.
