The Accra Circle Obra spot trotro station has been permanent evacuated.  Development works have begun at the location that became the iconic grounds for victory rallies, processions, demonstrations and a vibrant night life. By yesterday morning, excavation works had begun in what seems to be preparation for the construction of structures.

Obra Spot, a 200 meters plot of open land, served as  a trotro station for commuters traveling to the Eastern section of the City of Accra [Labadi, Tema, Osu,  Madina, Legon etc] , a night club and a transit point for travelers.

The name Obra Spot is derived from a TV comedy series in which the owner of the watery was an actor. The place is sometimes referred to as Maame Dokono park, in apparent reference to the role the proprietor played in the TV show.
