A video of some people using a section of the pavement of the newly commissioned Four Tier Pokuase Interchange as an eatery has emerged on social media.
The video making the rounds on social media shows a man pounding 'fufu' on the pavement by the roadside and a woman standing behind a table with food arranged on the table.
It appears the section of that road is currently not in use as some pedestrians can be seen walking on the road, with the pavement being used as an eatery (chop bar).
The Pokuase Interchange was commissioned barely two months ago and some traders have already converted the walkways into mini-shops and chop bars.

Commissioning the Pokuase Interchange
President Akufo-Addo commissioned the Four Tier Pokuase Interchange on Friday, July 9, 2021, which is the first of its kind in Ghana and West Africa and the second of its kind in Africa.
The interchange is expected to solve, once and for all, the nightmare endured for several decades by commuters within and outside of the vicinity of Pokuase.
The Pokuase Interchange also involved the construction of the 6.5-kilometre Awoshie to Pokuase road - an interchange at the intersection of ACP junction to Awoshie to Nsawam road; two (2) footbridges; the widening of the Nsawam road by some two (2) kilometres; drainage works; the provision of streetlights; and the construction of twelve (12) kilometres of town roads.
