Poor nature of roads at Awoshie NIC leads to collapse of business
● Deplorable roads at Awoshie
Residents of Awoshie NIC are calling on government to fix deplorable roads in their community. According to them, businesses have been closed due to the poor nature of the road which they claim is giving them chest infection. If the roads in Awoshie NIC have been fixed, the journey from Kasoa to places like Santa Maria and Antieku would have lasted for just eight minutes but it takes half an hour to get to such places as a result of rocky roads in the community. It is about time the authorities take action to fix the road since residents have been patiently waiting for quite a long time.
According to a resident, who is a taxi driver says, the poor nature of the road often burst their tanks when it rains. The topsoil of the land gets eroded each time it rains revealing the rocky nature of the road.
A business woman who is a resident of the area said, “ residents do not necessarily need artefact on the road but a little work can make it look better. Customers need to get down from their cars to purchase whatever goods they want due to the rocky nature of the road, she added.
According to an entrepreneur, their clothes are often filled with dust during the harmattan period and Catarrh is a common sickness here. Clothes hanged ends up being dirty due to the dusty roads. In the end, we ran at a loss.
