Trotro and taxi drivers who use the Kwabenya road are lamenting over the poor nature of the roads and are appealing to the Dome/Kwabenya Member of Parliament, Sarah Adwoa Safo to come to their aid.

According to the drives who spoke to ghanamps.com, their shock absorbers wear out within a short time and they have to spend a lot of money fixing their vehicles very often.

Mr. Kofi Darko Mensah, a taxi driver who has worked within the Dome/Kwabenya constituency for six years said in an interview that, the Kwabenya roads are “so so bad that the MP does not usually use the Kwabenya stretch of road to her house; “Adowa Safo would rather use the Ashognman Estate road”.

He further complained that for some time now the Dome/Kwabenya legislator does not stay in the constituency, “she had rather moved to stay at East Legon.”

“From Atomic down roundabout, my brother you would be in traffic for thirty (30) minutes before get to Kwabenya last stop instead of starting the road at where the MP has her own house, she has started from Taifa where you have her father’s building”, he lamented.

Again drivers are not willing to go to Brekuso from Kwabenya -Abomoo Junction when it is 6:00pm; the road is bad but you have a lot of people standing by the road side looking for vehicles, those who would want to go have to charge extra money, he pointed out.
