Residents of  Old Ningo and Ahwiam in the Ningo-Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region have appealed to government to as a matter of urgency construct a seven kilometer road that connects the Aflao Highway.

The road which is in a deplorable state will serve as an alternative route and ease traffic as contractors prepare to begin works on the Phase One Tema-Aflao road.

Traffic on the current Tema- Kpone section of the Trans-West Africa Highway is unbearable making commuters spend lengthy hours on a stretch that could have in normal situations taken less than 20 minutes to cover. The traffic is expected to worsen when dualisation of that stretch begins anytime soon.

An alternative route which is a 40 kilometer road from Pampram to Akplagbanya has some deplorable portions. The road from Pampram to portions of Old Ningo is completely tarred and in very good shape.

While a seven kilometer stretch from Old Ningo to Ahwiam is nothing to write home about, the remaining portion from Mangotsonya to Dawa which connects Sege is also in a good shape.

Residents GBC News spoke to said the deplorable portion of the Pampram to Akplagbanya road gets muddy and unmotorable when it rains leaving commuters to their fate. They appealed to the Ministry of Roads and Highways to go to their aid.

The DCE for Ningo-Pampram Jonathan Doku appealed to the Highway Ministry to construct the remaining seven kilometer road to give commuters some respite.

The 15-minute drive road when fixed will offer a great relief to motorists on the Trans- West Africa Highway Project, who hitherto would have used more than four hours on the traffic prone portion of Tema Kpone Barrier stretch.
