Aggrieved residents of Kwanwoma Akyeremade and Behenase electoral area in the Atwima Kwanwoma district of the Ashanti region have complained bitterly of the absence of speed ramps on their town roads.
The residents in their humble appeal are asking stakeholders and authorities to construct speed ramps in the two communities to avert rampant killing and injuring of residents through motorists that ply their trades in the area.
They have, however, given authorities two weeks ultimatum to start a lasting solution to the problem, else they will embark on a massive demonstration against them, especially the ruling NPP government.
Construction of Speed ramps in the two communities will curb or avert rampant knock-downs on the road, leading to losing innocent souls to their early graves.
Since the tarring of the road, overspeeding has become the hallmark of motorists plying that stretch of road, lead to a growing number of vehicle knock-downs in the town.
Our records are that Akyeremade Kwanwoma alone in some few months had recorded seventeen 17 road accidents cases with 10 ten out of the number dying whiles the rest of the victims have become incapacitated and bedridden.
We the concerned residents, with unflinching support for our incumbent Honorable Assembly Member in the person of Mr. Justice Baffour Awuah, largely known as WOFA KUSI, have many attempts to get motorists to listen to our plea by slowing down when they are in the two Akyeremade /Kwanwoma – Yabi township has proven futile.
We are stating categorically that, we will advise ourselves if the necessary authorities fail to address our plea in the next two weeks.
We believe the continual overspeeding and adamant nature of drivers on the road is posing threat to the lives of dwellers especially, our children and aged persons considering the increasing settlement and population growth in the area after the construction of the road.
As people, we hold the view that the creation of new speed ramps will help save or reduce the situation which has been an Albatros hanging on the necks of the good people of the said communities.
Per the above-listed reasons we humbly call on your high office for urgent steps to be taken for the creation of speed ramps
