Okyere Seabuor pointing at the rotten metals fence at Asafo interchange
THE FAMOUS Asafo Interchange, constructed about five years ago to improve movement of vehicles and beautify Kumasi is rapidly deteriorating, Daily Guide can confirm.
The metal fence erected at the place to prevent vehicles and people from falling off the huge edifice which is some meters high is very rusty, making the place dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles alike.
The paperís visit to the Asafo interchange on Friday afternoon revealed an unpleasant spectacle as the metal barricade at the huge edifice was falling apart.
The rotten metals were first seen at the portion of the interchange adjacent the A-Life supermarket area and it continued all the way to the Asafo Market area where some cold stores were situated.
Also, there were reports that the Asafo Interchange had been turned into a haven for hardened robbers in the city who robbed people of their valuables in the evenings.
These reports seemed to have been corroborated during Daily Guide's visit to the area as a spillage of blood that seemed to be a humanís was seen all over the place.
Okyere Seabuor who was seen loitering around the place expressed disappointment at the fast rate at which all the metal fencing the road had been corroding just five years after the interchange was opened to the public.
He suspected that the materials used for fencing the facility were inferior, resulting in the corrosion of the metal barricade, fearing similar inferior materials would be used at the Sofoline and Asokwa interchanges which were under construction.
Okyere Seabuor appealed to the city authorities to quickly move and replace the rotten metals at the Asafo Interchange to avert an imminent disaster, saying ďany person that leans on the decaying fence might fall from the top and die.Ē
He also appealed to the Ashanti Regional Police Command to begin sending the night patrol teams to the Asafo Interchange because the place had now become very dangerous due to the presence of criminals at the area.
