Tamale, Oct 01, GNA – The Tamale Metropolitan
Assembly (TaMA) on Monday resumed its decongestion exercise within the central
business district of the city to bring about discipline, sanity and orderliness
on the roads, devoid of congestion and filth.

A task force, constituted to ensure success of
the exercise, went round the central business district removing unauthorised
structures as well as vendors and hawkers from the streets.

Areas affected as part of the exercise
included the central business district, around and behind the area of the
central market, from VRA area to Sakasaka and from central business district to
Aboabu Traffic Light.

The exercise is in line with efforts by the
city authorities to instil discipline within the principal streets of Tamale by
ensuring that various public infrastructure outlay within the metropolis are
used only for the purposes for which they were built.

In May, last year, TaMA undertook a
decongestion exercise to ensure orderliness and sanity on the streets of the
city but the exercise could not be sustained and unauthorized structures sprang
up again in the central business area.

This was so as hawkers and other interest
groups claimed they were not consulted prior to the exercise.

In a statement, TaMA said it consulted all
stakeholders in the metropolis before resuming the decongestion exercise to
ensure that they cooperated with the task force to ensure success of the
exercise. 

Meanwhile, vendors and traders have been asked
to return to designated market places and areas they previously occupied.
