Plans are underway for a massive decongestion exercise on the principal streets of Accra from February 1st 2022, the government has announced.
Prior arrangements saw the government move traders off walkways in the past as a temporal measure as they normally return after a few weeks.
During a sensitization session with the various trader unions in Accra ahead of the rollout of the Operation Clean Your Frontage program, the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, warned transport operators who park indiscriminately on the streets and persons who ply their trade along the streets to put a stop to such acts.
“We will be tackling areas like Circle, and we will ensure that traders and what are known as floating commercial vehicles will not do business on the streets.”
“Then we will look at Kaneshie from First Light all the way to Obetsebi Lamptey Circle then Farisco area all the way to UTC and back and then Tudu as well.”
