The advisor for the four-tier Pokuase exchange, Ing.Kwabena Bempong, demands that the police intensify their daily patrols around the newly opened transport hub.
This follows the theft of some guardrails and components from street lights at the interchange in recent times.
He said the situation is worrying and needs to be addressed quickly.
Engineer no. Bempong told Citi News that some of the items were stolen in broad daylight by people posing as construction workers on the project.
“In fact, some of these things are done in broad daylight. If you go to the Awoshie end when we were building it, some people were busy removing the guardrails. You can see them with reflective vests and helmets, ”he said.
He added that police must help them patrol the transport hub in order to arrest such villains.
“The police should also help us patrol, especially at night, and deal with these villains when they see them,” he noted.
He also urged residents around the transport hub to assist the police in arresting people who were seen removing crash barriers and other materials from the project site.
“If you see them, question them and if in doubt report them to the police. We didn’t ask anyone to remove anything. “
