Madina-Adentan highway footbridges construction begins

By on

Construction has begun on footbridges along the Madina-Adentan highway after an 18-year-old West African Senior High School (WASS) student was killed by a taxi on the stretch had sparked spontaneous protests.

Joy News’ Komla Adom reported Wednesday that construction workers were on the REDCO site erecting hoardings for work on the footbridge to begin.

Also, new traffic lights yet to be powered were erected at the Adentan SDA junction, where pupils of the Tot to Teen School dangerously cross each morning.

On November 5, the Director of Bridges at the Ghana Highways Authority revealed that the footbridges on parts of the N4 Highway would be fixed by the end of 2019 after residents had signaled protests.

Yaqub Koray told Daniel Dadzie on the Super Morning Show Wednesday that the Highways Authority intends to complete six footbridges over the period.

Angry demonstrators set tyres ablaze, causing billows of smoke to clutch the atmosphere, which made the road – with a 100km/hr speed limit – nearly impassable. 

“No more deaths!” The residents chanted following the accident that occurred at about 4 pm.

According to Adom, metal barricades have been mounted in the median of the road from Madina Zongo junction through to Adentan Barrier to restrict pedestrians from crossing on the stretch, while police officers assist students and other road users to cross.
