The Kaneshie to Kasoa road’s Mallam-Kasoa segment has silt on both ends from the rain on Tuesday afternoon, making it difficult for cars to drive.
The Kasoa-Mallam sector is essentially at a stop due to the heavy vehicular gridlock the situation has produced.
Many commuters had to walk as of Tuesday, September 12 at 8:45 p.m. Additionally, some drivers and their friends were taking advantage of the situation to abuse customers by demanding illegal truck fees.
When the driver’s friend chose to pay GHc10 per person instead of GHc9 to go from Accra to Kasoa, several passengers and the driver’s mate came dangerously close to getting into a fight.
Some travelers who talked with Graphic Online raised grave concerns over the condition of the Kasoa-Mallam and the Mallam-Kasoa roads and urged the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta, to take prompt action to avert the crisis.
They defined what was happening as a ritual that needed to end.
