The Tamale Metropolitan Assembly is currently installing new traffic lights at some deserving areas within the metropolis, to regulate vehicular and human movement. The project has been awarded to an Accra-based company, Angels Data, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The Tamale metropolis has been without functioning traffic lights for years, leading to several motor accidents, but the city authorities are now changing all the faulty traffic lights, and replacing them with more durable and modern ones.
The installation of the new traffic lights, therefore, brings big relief to both drivers and pedestrians, and more especially, the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) officials, who have for the past years been going through stress in controlling traffic in Tamale.
The Tamale Metropolitan Public Affairs Director, Salifu Issah Musah, told the Northern File that the project would see to the installation of additional traffic lights at the Nyohini Roundabout, Ghana Water Company-Kalpohin Estate junction, King David Junction, and the BNI-Regional Coordinating Council junction among others.
