Opening of Tema Motorway interchange: Police deployed to guide road users
Following the opening of the Tema Motorway interchange, the Tema Regional Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) has deployed personnel to guide road users to ensure that they become familiar with the interchange and always adhere to traffic rules on the road.
The Tema Regional Motor Traffic and Transport Department Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Joseph Owusu-Bempah, who disclosed this to the Ghanaian Times said signal men had also been positioned at vantage points to help drivers to correctly follow road directional signs.
He observed that some drivers from Aflao direction to Accra had failed to use the underground tunnel and, therefore, made it difficult for drivers to locate their course back on track.
The Tema Regional Motor Traffic and Transport Department Commander advised all road users, especially drivers, to drive slowly while paying serious attention to road directional signs and signals.
He was optimistic that with discipline and adherence to the road traffic laws, driving in the Tema Metropolis would soon be devoid of heavy vehicular traffic and be safe.
