Drivers displeased over deplorable Anlo-Afiadenyigba roads 


Drivers plying the Anlo-Afiadenyigba-Havedzi Road in the Keta Municipality of the Volta region, have expressed frustration and anger over the deplorable state of the road network in the area. 

They said the untarred road have existed for decades and now appeared to be full of trenches with so much dusty. They lamented that it is death trap, especially during the rainy season.

Mr December Atinyo, a taxi driver at Anlo-Afiadenyigba junction, told a reporter from the Ghana News Agency that they always spend a lot of money in replacing vehicle parts due to the deplorable nature of the road.

He said apart from the difficulties faced in plying the road, many households and shops along the road always complain about the dusty environment whenever vehicles use the road.

Madam Rejoice Shigbadie, a provision shop owner, along the Anlo-Afiadenyigba road confirmed this and said her business was heavily affected by the dust particles that always settled on her goods.

She added that despite the plea and the numerous complaints made to the authorities and the government, they were yet to witness any facelift to address the challenges.

She appealed to philanthropists, corporate organisations, and the government to help put the roads in proper shape to prevent any unfortunate situation.

Meanwhile, a source disclosed that some youth of Anlo-Afiadenyigba have freely contributed earlier towards putting the deplorable township road in a good shape.

It was also revealed that the government had stepped in to construct the road for the residents but that had also stalled for about two years.
