I am not sure if they will considering the situation which necessitated the plan. I won't consider as a ''large overpass''. If you had witnessed traffic at circle some time back, you would agree that this will serve as well, I guess.Im telling you they will regret this as has many other cities which built large overpasses in their centres.
@DobidoeDealing with the traffic issue at Circle is as important as investing in Accra Metro Network. With increased in traffic, people don't patronize the buses, not even the dangerous trotros. They go for okada, which makes things worse with their increased number. You would be disappointed to know details about the existing Metro network. Some of the buses (a lot actually) where left broken whilst some in good condition were stolen, re-painted and being used as private property. If the judges are corrupt, what hope is left for the country? The people to manage the metro network are corrupt and don't put the interest of the country first. First things first. Let's get the right leaders who are ready to serve the nation in government and they will take care of our needs. Ethiopia's metro network was a result of leaders who care about their people.
I understand bro. Sometimes I also get carried away by my passion to see positive changes that improve the lives of Ghanaians.@Dobidoe
Hi, it's my fault, I meant Metro Rail Network not the metro buses. We need a Metro Rail Network to decongest the road and provide a disciplined mass transit system with defined stops, scheduled movements... My bad! My passions overtake me to sometimes leave out some tiny details.
Thank you!This is an alright project, but once more depicts a government without vision, once that is only interested in stuff that can prop them up. The money sunken into this project could have been used to establish an Accra Metro network, to help move people away from driving and those dangerous trotros and decongest the roads with a Metro network. I've said this so many times, repeatedly for 5 years now... Ethoipia in 2015 opened up it's first Metro network. This is Ethiopia, and you all can remember Ethiopia! They sat down and figured out the prudent investment decisions they must make to help move the mass, thinking mass, first and foremost. If traffic is an issue and investment in roads are going up, what will happen automatically is more cars on the roads, but with a Metro transit network, increase in traffic is definitely increase in revenue which can further improve and extend the metro network. With this huge investment in circle, first thing that we have lost is the ability to have be able to think the mass first, and which could actually have been a bigger plus for the government. Secondly, with these roads you cannot build a toll for it's a metro road network, so what will happen is find another means to tax people, who but the middle class who are already strained to the core. Thirdly, the cost of maintaining this road network cannot even be something i want to talk about now. Clearly, this is a nice to have project but a misguided investment that if we had a sane government and more importantly leadership community, they would have said stop! stop!! stop!!!. Let's build a metro network to decongest the roads first. Am practically disappointed!!
Its large and busy enough.I doubt if this is large and sophisticated enough to cause the effects you've mentioned. I have a feeling it will serve us well. Ako Adjei interchange is serving us well. This project lacks the sophistication to cause alarm. The topmost lane crosses a train track (which investors from China want to develop) and hence the need to raise it to that height to make way for future development of the tracks. Getting the allocated land back from traders is what is killing that project (that's if it's not totally dead yet).
