Roadways, they say, are the arteries of any town or state. Roadways also open up a town or region for financial and social action. Poor roads are as a result an enduring nightmare for motorists and other road users in and close to the Ashanti Location, a area with enormous economic and cultural exercise, with a rapid-expanding population.
The area is property to 1 of Africa’s most revered monarchs, the Asantehene, and it is not only uncomfortable the condition of the roadways but also a drain on the persons living in the location.
The towns of the area are acknowledged for their unique features in phrases of landmark, cultural and standard background. The mother nature of the roads is nevertheless influencing the financial influence these cultural histories and landmarks could have designed on the communities exactly where they are situated. Tourism which the location could leverage on to elevate earnings for its progress is tremendously hampered simply because the streets leading to the tourist websites are quite deplorable and so tricky to even persuade any tourist to pay a visit to those people centres for their relaxation and leisure.
Key vacationer attraction web sites like the Bonwire Kente weaving centre in the Kwabre East Municipality, the Bosomtwi Lake in the Bomsomtwi District and theBomfobiri Wildlife Sanctuary in the Sekyere Kumawu District encounter very low patronage because of to the deplorable nature of roadways primary to these services.
Even the Ashanti Regional funds, Kumasi — a town that has gained level of popularity beyond the shores of Africa is not spared of the deplorable roadways.
Kwadaso, Krofrom, Suame, Tafo, Subin, Ashtown, Oforikrom and other key parts inside Kumasi, some of which have turn out to be municipalities are nonetheless battling with roads that have created major potholes.
The roads are dusty in the course of the dry period, muddy and slippery in the rainy time and the everyday struggles of the road user worsen with the gaping potholes that have taken more than the roads.
The negative mother nature of these roadways in the Ashanti Area has an effect on education and learning, health care shipping and delivery and Agriculture.
A farming neighborhood in the Atwima Mponua district Bayerebon No. 5 will not be remaining out if a person is conversing about negative roadways in the Ashanti Area.
The condition impacts excellent healthcare in the spot as not only ambulances transporting sufferers are impacted, but also taxi cabs which are the commonest means of transporting the sick to the healthcare facility. These vehicles are not equipped to go with the required velocity thanks to the negative point out of the roads and typically it is a dangerous enterprise transporting patients. Envision a affected person going through intravenous infusion, what we typically phone drip, and possessing to be transported on a pothole-riddled road from just one healthcare facility to the other. Photograph a female in labour remaining ferried from her residence to a clinic on this sort of a highway!
Farm make from farms in the hinterland fall short to reach the town or municipal centres. This is discouraging to farmers in people locations as their labour is not rewarded simply for the reason that the suggests to transportation foodstuffs to the suitable markets are not there. They finish up advertising their produce cheaply or observe they rot on their farms. This has an effect on the area or country’s general food stuff protection as foodstuffs would have to be sourced from other international locations to fulfill usage amounts.
One more location deserving of point out is Kaase, which is found in the Asokwa Municipality. I get offended every single I take a look at this place. My anger stems from the simple fact that, Kaase is an industrial location with practical industries like Olam Cocoa, AGM Cocoa, timber processing organizations, the Guinness Ghana Limited and the Kumasi Abattoir Firm Constrained, but the character of the streets there is nothing at all to create property about.
For almighty Obuasi, a town which is touted as Ghana’s Gold City, the least talk about undesirable streets there, the superior. The Obuasi to Dunkwa street is also extremely poor. If Ghana was identified as the Gold Coastline, then it was due to cities like Obuasi. Gold has been mined in this city for in excess of a century, yet the condition of roads there is nothing at all small of disgraceful. Not long ago, there was some demonstration there to thrust home their quest for improved roads.
The law enforcement obtain it pretty challenging to combat crime and commuters who use these streets on a day-to-day foundation bear the brunt of the nature of the dusty, slippery and muddy roads.
Specified the image painted above, the disappointment grows day by day in a region where by people today have robust affection for the ruling political celebration, the New Patriotic Bash (NPP). In truth, the Ashanti area is a stronghold of the governing social gathering. The loyalty of the area to the social gathering is these types of that the NPP has not manufactured under 80% in elections in the 4th Republic.
For some, the predicament stays whether to keep churning out the deserving votes although they endure the roadways not deserving of their dedication, or the beneficiaries of their votes will attend to their contact to rehabilitate the streets.
People, commuters and typical road people look fed-up with the inadequate condition of the roads in the location and some of them have no option than to resort to demonstrations to compel the Authorities to get the issues tackled.
On Monday, 10th December 2018, protesters took to the streets over the inadequate character of the Obuasi-Dunkwa streets.
I recently listened to a community radio station in Kumasi for the duration of which a chief of one particular of the youth teams in the region was lamenting about how successive Governments like the recent just one have neglected a main plight of the individuals who queue for several hours largely in the sunlight to vote in each individual election.
He claimed they were being also setting up a enormous demonstration in excess of the undesirable streets in the location and also to demand their honest share of the national cake.
I became so delighted when I read that cupboard accredited a €55 million facility for the rehabilitation of a 100-kilometre street community and road initiatives for some cities and communities in Kumasi. While the beneficiary locations Bantama Sub metro, Kwadaso, Manhyia, Oforikrom, Suame, Asokwa, Subin, Nhyiaeso and Tafo Pankrono are major and very crucial areas in the location because of the economic and traditional things to do that go on there, locations with the worst street networks have not been captured in this arrangement.
In the 2016 standard elections, the Kwabre East Constituency voted massively for the NPP (in excess of 90% votes for equally Presidential and Parliamentary). Even with this substantial exhibit of solidarity with the celebration, this area has the worst highway community in the Ashanti Area. Even though do the job started out some 3 months in the past to up grade some of the streets, it seems contractors have deserted the initiatives as most of them are not observed on site and the development of function continues to be slow at regions in which contractors are performing.
Highway people on the Atonsu-Kuntenase road have been still left to endure the dust after contractors were not observed on website in the course of a take a look at. Do the job development is slow on the Aboabo-Airport roundabout highway and the Airport Roundabout-Estate junction road.
The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, in the existence of the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II chided some contractors for not remaining equipped to satisfy the deadline for the venture.
Deep potholes are turning into gullies on roadways in just the Asokore Mampong Municipality which had been rehabilitated right before the 2016 general elections. Motorists and road end users, who hailed the task when it was currently being executed, now see most streets in the municipality as dying traps.
I attribute negligence on the portion of officials who ended up supposed to engage in supervisory roles when the task was getting executed, and shoddy get the job done on the portion of the contractor who undertook the challenge, for this squander for resources.
There are ongoing strategies by some regional radio stations in Kumasi and the Ashanti area to get the terrible streets mounted. For people and road buyers, the anger above terrible roads in the Ashanti area is expanding every day.
For me, worthy votes can’t beget such unworthy roads. The roads proceed to be Ashanti Region’s biggest nightmare, and the previously responsibility bearers heed the phone of citizens to tackle the concerns, the better.
