The Chairman of PROTOA Branch at Odumase lorry station in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality, Mr. Isaac Agyei has questioned authorities of Lower Manya, why they did not charge the contractor who constructed the Somanya intersection traffic light to repair it.
He revealed that the trafffic light which has broken down for close to eight (8) years now should have been repaired by the contractor. According to him, authorities should have taken immediate action to bring the contractor on board to repair it, after it had broken down within period of three (3) months after its construction.
Speaking on the Drive Alive Program on Rite FM, Mr. Agyei has blamed the previous administration not taking steps to cure the issues as at now.
According to him, the absence of the traffic light in the area is causing serious accidents and also causing more traffic jams during weekends, especially when funerals and other programs are going on in the town.
He however advised the new traffic light should be powered by solar.
