Roads serve as a linking factor and a major communicating factor in the business activities of towns and cities as well as rural areas and urban areas. Roads are a key developing factor in the advancement of nations and their developmental process is essential.
The Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan assembly and the Western Regional Highways authority have been commended over the years for the development of roads in the region with major linking roads in good shape and some to accounting for the long list of very deteriorating roads in the country.
However, Some newly constructed roads in the region do not have the necessary markings and road safety signs that make the roads accessible with less vehicle accidents occurring on the road.a key example of such road is the wide kilometer stretch road which links the towns of Anaji and Nkroful areas making the road very hard to navigate by drivers and users of the road.
Speaking on The Kingdom Breakfast segment today , Takoradi Police Ebo the Lion urged the contractors of the road to provide markings for the road to avoid disasters from happening on the stretch. In a phone interview with Agya Bismark the former National road safety commision director for the region stated that the markings were needed and very essential but usually funds needed to fund these marking projects are released to contractors on time. He believes that contractors will execute the markings as soon as they get the needed funds to work on the roads.
Other major linking roads in the region do not have markings. safety signs and traffic lights which make plying the road by users a difficult factor. He pleaded with authorities to kindly get these things done as quick as possible to ensure safety on our roads.
The Takoradi Police is segement on the Kingdom Breakfast which seeks to tackle issues of worrying concern to the natives of the Takoradi Constituency and the western region as a whole.
