LEDZOKUKU K:Phase 2 of Teshie-Nungua beach road at advanced stage
|Teshie-Nungua beach road|| |
In some few months to come, residents in Teshie, Nungua and beyond would not have difficulty getting to Accra.
The usual hectic traffic situation that characterizes their daily journey to and from Accra along the Accra-Tema Beach road usually between Teshie-Lascala and the Labadi Hotel would soon give way to free-flowing traffic as work on the second phase of the dual carriage road has gotten to advanced stage.
The problem initially with the road was not only that it was a single carriage but also in a very bad state, thus slowing vehicular movement along that stretch.
But just when government realized there was a need to expand the road network to meet the increasing population of people and vehicles that ply the road, the slow pace of construction work compounded the travelling ordeals of road users.
One hardly passes without complaining about the insensitivity of the contractor to the plight of road users. So intense is the traffic ordeal that, sometimes for close to 15 to 20 minutes, no car moves.
You would curse your star if you are in a hurry to a place and there happens to be a broken car on the road. The only way to avoid the traffic congestion along the road is to leave your house very early at dawn even if your day starts early late.
Completion of the first phase of the road which was opened to traffic in August last year brought some joy to residents, yet still they expressed disappointment at the delay in completing the second phase.
However, as if the expansion of the main road was not good enough, one major road, the "bush road", which serves as an alternative for many vehicles, is also seriously being constructed. Drains and culverts along the road have almost been finished while some portions are already being tarred.
The road passes through Tsuibleoo to Tebibianor, Rasta and opens at first gate along the Accra-Tema beach road.
When completed, it would provide opportunity for many drivers to avoid vehicular congestion between Lascala and Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre as a result of a number of feeder roads that opens at main road around that area.
In addition, many other important drains and feeder roads in the Teshie-Nungua Township have been improved making it easier for cars to easily make their ways to the main road.
