Huge pit at Nkrumah Circle a death trap
City authorities in Accra must act immediately to avert any unforeseen disaster by covering a huge hole at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange close to the Ernest Chemist shop.
The pit according to traders at the location was dug several weeks ago by the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) to replace obsolete pipes underground.
They said that, the obsolete pipes had been the cause of deterioration of that section of the road.
Professor James, a commercial driver, said drivers who plied that stretch faced serious problems especially at night and had to battle long traffic during rush hours.
“Consider a driver who is not aware of the pits and at top speed at night, what do you think might happen?” he queried.
Maame Adwoa, a trader, also said the trench had turned into a water reservoir and a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
About a month ago, the troubles commercial drivers and pedestrians faced on that portion of the road were highlighted by this paper but nothing seems to be done.
Those concerned should move with speed and address this issue.
