Four roundabouts from Ejisu to KNUST: Ejisu roundabout, Boadi roundabout, Oduom round and KNUST roundabout are set to be removed before the year ends.
This order came from the Ministry of Roads and Highways. They have caused many road accidents due to their narrow nature.
The sector Minister, Kwasi Amoakoh-Atta, said “During the construction, this provision was made for a good reason; for safety priorities. But at the moment, we think that the facility has outlived its usefulness. Engineering review has proven that we can remove them [the roundabouts], and there couldn’t be any appropriate occasion to give that directive than now.”
“I am therefore directing my chief director and all the directors of agencies that within the next two months… all these four roundabouts should be removed, and the road straightened up. By so doing, all these cobalt stones will be removed on the entire stretches. ”
This innovative will hopefully reduce congested traffic.
