Mr Magnus Lincoln Quarshie, leader of a consulting team preparing transport plans to ease the chaotic traffic situation in Kumasi, has asked Municipal, Metropolitan and District Assemblies (MMDS) to make sure land allocation designs and projects are adequately publicized.

This, he said, would not only help to end the many land disputes among developers, but also promote proper physical development.

He was addressing the first ever stakeholders’ consultative meeting of the “Greater Kumasi Transport Plan” at the Golden Tulip in Kumasi on Friday.

Kumasi and six outlying districts, Afigya-Kwabre, Kwabre East, Ejisu-Juaben, Atwima-Kwanwoma, Bosomtwe and Atwima-Nwabiagya are the beneficiaries.

District Chief Executives, presiding members, regional and district planners, budget officers, transport directors and managers, road and building and road contractors, security agencies and chiefs participated in the workshop.

Mr Quarshie said it was time the assemblies worked in close collaboration with other stakeholders to achieve total transformation of the districts.

They should make concerted efforts to stop the haphazard development of the cities, towns and villages.

He noted that health, education and tourism had transport linkages and that was why they should have well developed plans.

Dr Kwaku Agyemang-Mensah, Ashanti Regional Minister, in an address read for him, said the meeting could not have come at a more opportune time given the traffic congestion, which was making vehicular and pedestrian movement difficult, particularly in the Kumasi Metropolis.

He advised the stakeholders to work together to ensure the success of the project for smooth socio-economic development.
