Residents of Nhyiaeso Proper in the Old Tafo municipality of the Ashanti Region have appealed to the government to construct the Nhyiaeso Moro market-Aboabo link road, abandoned for over a decade.

The residents noted that successive governments have failed to make the road motorable in spite of several pleas from communities along the stretch.

The Nhyiaeso proper-Aboabo link road was a need and great concern for the residents.

They had on several occasions expressed their unhappiness about the abandonment of the road and even threatened not to participate in any general elections because politicians were taking them for granted.

Due to the deplorable nature of the road, which had stones sticking out dangerously, in addition to gallies, commercial vehicles refused to ply the road after 18:00 hours when armed robbers attack indiscriminately under the cover of darkness.

Mr Simon Adjei in an interview said the road if properly constructed, would ease traffic on the narrow Krofrom traffic-Moro market road as vehicles heading to Tafo, Mamponteng, and their environs from Kumasi or Kejatia would use that link.

Mr Adjei was speaking in an exclusive interview with Silver FM's Akwadaa Nyame on constituency Daily Report this morning at Tafo/Pankrono constituency.

Hon Owusu King, Assembly member in the area also added that tipper truck drivers who commute to the area to offload sand along the link road had turned the community inner roads into a thoroughfare as they avoid the deplorable road.

He noted that these truck drivers drove at top speed in the community, a situation, he said exposed the lives of residents especially children to danger adding that "they have destroyed the community inner roads which he had been reshaping out of his own resources."

He has then appealed to the Old Tafo municipal Assembly to provide a drainage system in the community as well as a tarred road.

He also called for the provision of streetlights to augment the ones residents had provided in the community while appealing to the Police to intensify their patrols in the area to ward off criminals.
