Residents of Tarkwa in the Western region have protested the poor nature of their roads with a roadblock and went on to burn some tyres.
Information available to YEN.com.gh suggests that this is the second time in six months that such an action has been taken by the people.
The protest disrupted traffic causing gridlock on the over 10-kilometre Tarkwa-Ahietieso stretch of the main road.
Commuters were left stranded as a result, and police officials have implemented measures to bring the situation under control.
The angry residents demonstrating claimed the government has taken them for granted. They have therefore petitioned the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area on the matter.
“I stay close to this road and over the years this road has been in a very deplorable state. When you ply this road, it is either you fix your car every week or every other day,” one of the protesters said, according to Citinewsroom.com
He also complained about the dust from the road and trucks moving to and from mining companies in the area.
