Accra,  May 18, GNA – Residents of Awoshie Kokroko, Chabaa and

Awoshie Mallam have appealed to the government to construct storm drains and bridges to relieve them of frequent flooding whenever it rains.

The residents made the appeal when Mr Justice Joe Appiah, the Member of

Parliament for Ablekuma North, in the company of some New

Patriotic Party (NPP) executives, paid a working visit to those areas to

acquaint themselves with the challenges facing the people.
Nii Kwatei Kwei, Gbawe Lafia Mantse, acted as spokesperson for the
people.
He recounted how during the construction of the N1 Highway, he

approached an engineer to consider the construction of a drain into the

main storm drain at Awoshie Kokroko but he refused resulting in

flooding whenever it rains.
Nii Kwatei Kwei also complained about lack of steps to residential
areas, which are mostly low-lying onto the highway, pedestrian crossings
and a fly-over, endangering lives, especially of school children in about
10 schools who have to cross the road daily.
Signboards on the roads, he said, were also not helpful to motorists
since some were even deceptive.

Responding to their concerns, Mr  Appiah said he would make representations on the floor of Parliament and to the Millennium Development Authority (MIDA) for the issues of the storm drains and dangers on the highway to be rectified.
