Uncovered pipelines around the 37 intersection belonging to the Ghana Water Company is posing danger to pedestrians; as such the manhole is now serving as dumping site for residents.
For pedestrians who usually use the 37 intersection either crossing to the main bus station or the Lapaz bus station, seeing the uncovered water pipelines opened is “dangerous”.
For some of the pedestrians, a lot of these street beggars can fall into the manhole and particularly people who use the busy 37 station at night.
A pedestrian who only gave his name as Enoch said “the uncovered Ghana water pipelines poses a danger to pedestrians particularly those who use the road in the night, someone in hurry might not see this and fall into it, the authorities must do something about it”.
A bottle and sachet water seller along the stretch also said “this road, all the big men pass here, don’t they see it, even before, all these ones were opened, and it took some trotro drivers to cover it halfway”.
Although people selling around the uncovered Ghana water pipelines denied ever dumping refuse in the manhole, the Republic Press has observed that the manhole has been turned into a dumping site.
