The heavy presence of Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) of the Odorkor Police Division on the Odorkor and Mallam stretch, where a drainage construction is underway has aided with the free follow of traffic.

A visit to the site by on Wednesday and interactions with most road users shows their happiness with the way and manner the MTTD is controlling the traffic situation.

However, the only dissatisfaction by road users has to do with heavy traffic situation around the Sakarman traffic light between 4:00pm to 8:00pm.

In an interview with Gabriel Engman, a Sanitary Engineer with the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) Sanitation and Water Project, he pleaded that road users have to bear with the situation but most of the time the MTTD men and women in uniform are visible to direct the traffic situation.

He further added that measures had been put in place to tow away any vehicle that would breakdown along the Mallam and Odorkor stretch not to cause traffic as road safety commission had given assurance of their assistance.

On the extent of work done so far Gabriel Engman, indicated that he is very satisfied with work done so far but was on site to push the contractor to work faster.

Mr. Emmanuel Eklu of the Ghana Highways Authority material division also commended, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Michael Asiedu for ensuring that his men and women are on the ground, to assist with free follow of traffic and being around himself to ascertain the situation on the ground.
