Portions of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra have developed deep potholes, just five months after the €74 million project was commissioned.
What started as small pothole has become a pond in front of Ernest Chemist close to the Newtown Overhead.
The situation is worsening by the day, obstructing the flow of traffic, and the situation becomes worse when there is rainfall, according to CitiFM.
Some drivers, who spoke to Citi News, also expressed their frustration about the problem.
“It is really affecting our work. The potholes delay the flow of traffic. Most of the drivers have to slow down and navigate their turns and this causes traffic,” one driver complained.
The Ghanaian drivers are not the only ones affected by the development as Nigerian drivers in the same area also complain bitterly. They say the potholes have been there for almost three months now.
“The potholes have been here for like three months now. There is a burst pipe here which erodes the roads. It is slowing down business because most of the drivers do not want to come here because their tires will get burst and all that. It also causes delay and traffic. The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) came here to fix the problem but because they do not know what exactly the problem is, they are unable to fix it,” a Nigeria driver said.
