Accidents become rampant on Madina-Adenta Highway

The Madina-Adenta Highway has become a death trap for pedestrians as the latest victim is a middle-aged woman who knocked down by a KIA truck.


The accident occurred on Monday, November 5, 2018, happened at the Fire Stone on the Madina – Adenta – Aburi Highway.

This comes barely 72 hours since the death of a 33-year-old woman on the same highway at Adenta SDA Junction.

Residents of the area say they are living in fear of being knocked down as accidents have become rampant on the Highway.

This they attribute to the absence of footbridges to ensure safe movement of pedestrians from one side to the other on the highway.

Last Friday, there was some chaos on the Adenta-Oyarifa road when angry residents of Adenta Barrier staged a demonstration to demand the construction of footbridges on the road.

The protest was sparked after a 33-year-old woman was killed in a hit-and-run incident that same evening.

Soldiers were deployed to the area to ensure calmness but the angry residents re-mobilized, burning tyres, gallons on the road.

According to them, such deaths have become a common occurrence due to the absence of footbridges.
