The Upper-East Regional Office of the Department Of Urban Roads, under the Ministry Of Roads And Highways, in conjunction with the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly is redesignating the Ayia Street, next to Bencyn Pharmacy, as a one-way street.
“We wish to bring to the attention of the motoring public, that the Ayia Street has forthwith been re-designated a one way in the south-north direction only. This implies that vehicular traffic shall only be permitted from Bolgatanga-Bawku road towards Apex Bank intersection only. Traffic that hitherto travelled in the opposite direction from the Apex Bank intersection to the Bolgatanga-Bawku road may use either of the two routes: the Apex Bank-NIB-Bank-Central Mosque road. Alternatively, [motorists can use] the Apex Bank-Bank-of-Africa-Tamale station road.”
“This essential traffic management intervention has become necessary, to help reduce congestion delays and improve travel-times and road safety. Additionally, street parking on the Ayia Street on market days is also strictly prohibited henceforth except for the offloading of goods.”
“All are respectfully entreated to take note and comply accordingly, to facilitate the free flow of motorised traffic and ensure optimised safety for all road users.”
When Engineer Peter Amoako, the Upper East Regional Director of the Department of Urban Roads spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, he mentioned that police personnel from the Bolgatanga Division of the MTTD, staff of the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly and Urban Roads would be on hand to give motorists the support they need to acclimatise with the new changes.
