KMA OPENS KEJETIA ROADS
MAJOR road networks around the Kejetia/Central Market Redevelopment Project in Kumasi have officially been opened after nearly two years of closure.
The roads, which formed a major component of the Kejetia/Central Market Redevelopment project, were closed in 2017 to enable the Brazilian contractors, engaged by government to construct the Terminal, do their work without hinderance.
These included the Kejetia to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) roundabout and Kejetia to Suame roundabout, Kejetia to Dr. Mensah and other major networks in the city, which link the Central Market Redevelopment project.
The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, during a recent press conference, assured that the roads would be opened to traffic soon, even though the terminal was not yet fully operational.
And true to the promise, all the major roads were opened to traffic on Monday morning.
Godwin Okumah Nyame, the KMA PRO, said joint military/police teams had been engaged to make sure that hawkers did not return to the streets.
He told THE PUBLISHER that residents of the city had so far cooperated with the directives, adding that traders and hawkers would not be allowed to trade in the streets again.
