The Kwadaso Municipal Assembly under the watch of MCE Hon. Richmond Agyenim Boateng has resumed the cleaning of the Sofoline lorry terminal.
Cleaners who were tasked with the role are now back to their duty post and now sweep the terminal not only on Mondays to Thursdays, but on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as well.
Prior to the foregoing, they only swept on Mondays to Thursdays, leaving the lorry terminal engulfed with plastic waste on Fridays to Sundays.
The Sofoline branch Chairman for GPRTU Mr. Albert Boamah had earlier informed the press about the situation, including pipelines connected by the assembly to a BOT toilet and urinal facilities.
The pipelines drained urine and other liquid waste from the duo, directly into the Kwadaso river.
Worsening the situation was a stench from the toilet facility that made transport operation at the terminal uncomfortable for drivers and GPRTU officials.
After news broke out on the situation, the Assembly has swiftly addressed the challenge and has restored the good sanitary condition of the terminal.
A urinary that was attached to the BOT toilet has been demolished.
The assembly has also installed street lights within the lorry terminal.
Mr. Albert Boamah in a press briefing thanked the MCE and officials of the assembly for the swift response and for salvaging the lorry terminal from the menace.
He told the press that as GPRTU officials, they have also stepped up action to enhance sanitation within the terminal.
Currently they have positioned plastic refuse bins at vantage locations within the terminal for the collection of solid waste materials.
He however pleaded on the assembly to facilitate the posting of police personnel to the area as a way of enhancing security.
The Chairman disclosed that a police station built at the terminal has until now not been utilized.
“No Police person has not been posted to the station up till now”, he indicated.
He therefore called on the assembly to address the situation.
