Closure Of Roads! Closure Of Roads!

The Police Administration has announced the closure of some public roads in Accra and traffic management arrangements between Thursday, July 10 and Sunday, July 13, in connection with the ECOWAS Heads of State and Government meeting.

A press statement issued by the Ghana Police Service and signed by the Director General/Public Affairs, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Rev. David Nenyi Ampah-Ben-nin,said the road from Moven-pick Hotel to the Airport on the Independence Avenue would be closed to the general public.

It said traffic on the Liberation Road, approaching the National Theatre traffic light to the Ministries area will be diverted onto Barnes Road to take a detour from the Accra Polytechnic to the Ministries.

Traffic from the Liberation Road would be diverted onto the Castle Road through the AU Circle, through Ridge Roundabout to various destinations.

Traffic on the Independence Avenue between the AU Circle and Novotel would be on a single carriageway in both directions.

The Independence Avenue, from Association Traffic Intersection to Movenpick Hotel, will be converted into a one way and segregated to allow smooth passage of VVIP convoys and at the same time traffic from the AU Circle would use the other portion of the single carriage way in both directions.

The statement warned “no vehicle will be allowed to park or drive through the above-mentioned sealed roads,” assuring traffic officers would be on hand to give assistance to motorists on the alternative diverted routes.

“The general public, especially motorists are entreated to cooperate with the police to ensure a successful summit,” it said.
