Washing on pavements destroying our roads
By Bernice Bessey
The Ministry of Roads and Highways must check the operations of second-hand refrigerator dealers at Kaneshie, because their frequent washing of fridges on the pavements of the main Kaneshie-Mallam road is resulting in the road developing potholes.
There is a particular pothole on this stretch of road where vehicles from North Kaneshie join the main road, which is gradually growing in size.
The File also noted there had been several maintenance works at that very spot.
Also, just close to the first overpass, some tomatoes sellers off-load their produce there, and juice from the tomatoes drip onto the road creating potholes and leaving a stench in the area.
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) should arrest those who do their washing of products on the pavements and roadsides, and in the process destroy the roads, to serve as a deterrent to others.
In Bubuashie, Mataheko and some areas of the metropolis there are no gutters, so the residents are compelled to throw their waste water onto the road.
For instance, on the Circle-Caprice road, motorbike dealers also wash their bikes on the pavements, which would result in damage to the road, as has happened at Kaneshie.
