AMA asked to drive away hawkers from Accra Tema Station

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) was on Wednesday asked to decongest the Accra Tema Lorry Station and free the area of invasion by hawkers.

Mr S. K. Atitsogbui, acting Welfare Officer of the Station, who made the call to the Ghana News Agency, said commercial vehicle owners, hawkers/traders and commuters are all competing for the same space which was suppose to serve as a vehicle boarding station.

He said the invasion by the hawkers made it difficult for drivers to maneuver their ways these days, which had created a messy situation in the area.

According to him when a driver hooted a horn, the hawkers do not heed, thus it was slowing their service and other activities to passengers.

Mr Atitsogbui, who is also the Chairman of Accra-New Town branch of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (TUC), said the area meant for pedestrians have also been taken over by the hawkers.
