Photo of the week: Wanted: Traffic light repairers

Two MTTU officers had come to direct traffic at the intersection just before Circle in Accra. But before they could do this, the ailing health of the traffic light had to be fixed.

The hanging traffic lights were working but faced the wrong direction threatening to create chaos for drivers to obey its instructions and for pedestrians to cross the intersection safely.

By their own ingenuity, the police officers had to improvise using ropes and a bench, to do some impromptu repair works.

After some time their ingenuity stabilized the traffic light post and they returned to their original duty of overseeing the traffic on the road.

While keeping an eye of the post – in case it gives up again.

Congratulations to the officers. Shame on our maintenance culture.
