The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, KMA, has suspended indefinitely the much publicized partial re-opening of the roads to and from the newly built Kejetia terminal complex.
Last week, the KMA issued a statement announcing its decision to clear part of the temporary fence around the project to allow motorists to as of 16th of this month use the premises as a thorough fare ahead of the Christmas festivities.
The plan, the KMA explained, is to avert escalation of human and vehicular congestion and possible consequence on life and property during the yuletide.
Speaking to Radio Ghana in Kumasi, Public Relations Officer of the KMA, Godwin Okumah Nyame noted that officials of the Assembly encountered an undesirable situation around the terminal complex last Saturday to assess the readiness of the place for the partial opening of the roads.
The situation, Mr. Nyame, said was enough indication of the public’s lack of appreciation of the intentions and decision of the Assembly.
The indefinite suspension of the planned partial re-opening of the Kejetia roads is therefore to enable the KMA and its officials to undertake further and enhanced public awareness about the intention to allow vehicular passage through the new project.
The KMA’s PRO insisted that, the schedule was never to open the Kejetia terminal complex for use for business as was misunderstood by the traders and hawkers who trooped to the project area last Saturday wanting to acquire spaces to do their business.
