 Entire the footbridges to save lives

For decades, citizens of Adenta, Ritz Junction, and Madina have both clamored or drawn the eye of the authorities to the impact the dearth of pedestrian footbridges along the whole stretch of the 3-lane carriageway from PRESEC through to the Adenta barrier is having on them. Every day that the government refuses to heed their calls, innocent lives, often youngsters, the future leaders of the country, are lost.

On account that its production approximately a decade ago, the toll road has claimed the lives of approximately 118 humans, and nevertheless counting. A limitless wide variety has also been injured or maimed via accidents. In their quest to pressure the government to act, residents of the region and their environs have given a November 12, 2018 ultimatum to demonstrate their frustration over the six uncompleted footbridges at the Madina-Adenta-Aburi highway.

They issued the ultimatum at a metropolis corridor assembly last Sunday, October 28, 2018. At the said meeting, the various residents have been clad in purple T-shirts, with the inscription: #fixourfootbridgesnow, boldly inscribed on the front and on the back to indicate their solution to use all means to get the footbridges completed.

For them and lots of different those who do not live close to or use that course, the lives already lost at the motorway are too many for them to watch for that dedication to be fulfilled. The daily photograph reveals the state of being inactive of the authorities responsible for finishing the footbridges most unlucky and an indication of the dearth of regard for the lives of humans.

We also blame politicians, especially members of Parliament and leading executives of the various assemblies, for now not overtly voicing citizens’ challenge over the useless deaths on that path on an everyday basis. From certain quarters we've heard approximately the dearth of funds to finish the venture.

However, we believe that prioritizing tasks will allow the authorities to complete the footbridges steadily. What we are scared approximately is that human individuals can't be expected and the meant demonstration, despite the fact that with good intentions intended to be peaceful, could come to be violent and create greater problems for society.

Comparable demonstrations in different parts of the country have led to the loss of lives and properties. Protests also can irritate the already awful traffic scenario on that extent of the motorway in which drivers spend hours on cease traversing that direction. The daily photo does not agree that the handiest issue a good way to push the authorities to take action is a demonstration.

We suppose that they must recognize better by using taking proactive steps to cope with the state of affairs, even if on a gradual basis. While we sympathize with the citizens, we enchantment to them to make sure that they do not do whatever a good way to create extra problems but make their grievances regarded to the authorities peacefully.
