Urgent road repair needed on Koforidua Poly highway
In recent times, the Koforidua Poly highway has witnessed a significant degradation, forcing drivers to slow down and navigate treacherous road conditions. I wish to draw your attention to a particularly alarming issue on this road – a massive pothole located just after the Capital View traffic light. This pothole, situated between Capital View and Bedtime Road, has become a hotspot for accidents and vehicular damage.
Not too long ago, while on my way to church, I witnessed a driver attempting to avoid this hazardous pothole. Unfortunately, in doing so, the driver’s vehicle suffered a ruptured fuel tank and the loss of a tyre. This incident is just one of many that have occurred on this stretch of road, and it is high time that measures are taken to address this pressing issue and ensure the safety of those who traverse this route.
I am writing to bring this matter to the attention of the relevant road and highway authorities within the New Juaben South Municipality. The situation is not only causing physical harm to individuals but is also resulting in extensive damage to vehicles travelling along this stretch. It is my hope that this letter will prompt an urgent response and action to rectify the dire situation on the Koforidua Poly highway.
The condition of our roads is a reflection of the overall safety and well-being of the community. Neglecting road maintenance can have serious consequences, as we have witnessed on the Koforidua Poly highway. Accidents, injuries, and vehicle damage are avoidable consequences of this deteriorating infrastructure.
I implore the relevant authorities to prioritise the repair and maintenance of this vital road. This is not just an inconvenience but a matter of public safety. The longer we delay in addressing this issue, the more lives will be put at risk, and the more damage will be inflicted on vehicles.
Furthermore, the state of our roads can impact economic activities in the area. The Koforidua Poly highway serves as a crucial transportation route for both residents and businesses. The current state of disrepair not only jeopardizes safety but also hampers economic growth and development.
I urge the authorities to act swiftly and decisively to fix the porthole on the Koforidua Poly highway and, more broadly, to invest in the maintenance and improvement of our roads. This is not merely a matter of convenience; it is a matter of life and death. We cannot afford to let this situation persist any longer. I am confident that, with the necessary attention and resources, we can rectify this problem and ensure safer and more efficient transportation for all.
