The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has held a meeting with stakeholders in the transportation sector to find a more efficient way of regulating activities of various transport unions.


The meeting was necessitated by the unregulated activities of the majority of the transport unions, terminals and lorry stations in the metropolis.


Mr. Osei Asibey Antwi, the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), bemoaned the virtual take-over of pavements and other unauthorized areas by those transport unions, and insisted that the Assembly would not tolerate such acts of indiscipline.


He cited the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) where the frontage of the referral facility had been illegally converted into a lorry terminal to the inconvenience of patients and hospital authorities.


In addition, these transport unions had also demonstrated sheer impudence for motor traffic regulations causing uneasiness at the lorry terminals.
