Bus blocks Palm Wine trotro route. This afternoon, the La Abormi to Palm Wine junction road was blocked by a bus which ran aditch into the right side walk. The bus approaching from Wireless veered into the right pavement, sinking the right front tire into the drain. The vehicle has the rear blocking the road thus turning the two lanes into one. The Police and residents helped control traffic as they awaited a crane to lift the tire back onto the road. Until, the bus clears the road, Accra trotro commuters traveling along the Abormi and Trade fair streets my experience some delays. The photo is hazy due to severe harmattan along the coast.
The Labone trotro route to Labadi is being marked after asphalt laying over the past days. The right lane from Danquah second stop is usually closed to traffic from 10 PM. Trotro passengers tripping from Circle to Labadi and stopping alongway, will therefore have to alight at Danquah first stop, opposite the western entrance of the Police Hospital, and walk right towards Labone or alight mid way and cross right. From Danquah first , the trotro will make a detour to the left and and will therefore not stop at Danquah second stop, Bridge or Labone junction bus stop.
Some photos from the scene.
Due to ongoing construction work at Nkrumah Circle, the trotro station in front of the Fraga filling station under the old Overhead bridge at circle has been closed. Passengers will now alight in front of Ernest Chemists and cross by foot. Trotro buses approaching from Osu, Nima and Kanda will now turn back under the bridge.
You can observe that the end of the right shoulder lane – [middle far left in the picture above] – has been excavated.
