The Motor Traffic & Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service has announced some major roads in Accra will be closed on Tuesday, September 15.
The closure has become necessary as ECOWAS leaders will be arriving for a meeting at the Peduase Lodge in Aburi.
At least eight countries from the subregion are expected to participate in the said meeting.
According to Superintendent Sasu Mensah of the MTTD, the closure of roads is to ensure a safe and secure journey devoid of any traffic congestions that will disturb the smooth passage of the participants to the meeting.
He announced at a press briefing on Sunday the roads to be temporarily closed and areas that could experience traffic delays during the visit as follows:
· The Kotoka international airport to the liberation road at Opeibea.

· Kempinski hotel to the national theatre on the Independence avenue
· The liberation road through to N4 to Peduase Lodge
· The liberation road from 37 to Obasanjo street, Tang palace hotel

Superintendent Sasu Mensah cautioned the general public to adhere to traffic rules and regulations and also think of other alternative routes before leaving their homes to avoid any delays and discomfort.
“They are advised to respect all traffic rules and regulations, no account should a vehicle follow an approaching convoy”.
“Motorists should park on the right when they see the convoy approaching. Any inconvenience caused will be deeply regretted,” Adomonline.com quoted him as saying.
