Photos: Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Turned Into Lorry Station And Market

Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital is one of the biggest and busiest hospitals in the country instituted in the Garden City of West Africa, Kumasi.

At regional levels, it the biggest hospital in the Ashanti Region in relation to the services that hospitals, both pubic and private, render as a lot of patients troop in day-in-day-out for medical care. 

However, situations surrounding this very important edifice as an institution need to be addressed with immediate effect to prevent unforseen disasters.

Various routes leading to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital are gradually becoming tedious to plough as results of activities of drivers and traders. 

The route that links the Komfo Anokye Roundabout from Bantama has been encroached by both traders and drivers. 

Shop keepers along the Bantama High Street have taken over the pavement to display their goods while drivers also have turned the main road into loading station which always makes that route choked with very slow flow of traffic. 

A look at the 4BN - Komfo Anokye Roundabout route is not an exception. That link even displays the worst of scenes as drivers have turned that busy stretch into a total lorry station. 

As a result, a journey which takes less than 2 minutes from Komfo Anokye Roundabout to 4BN now takes close to 30 minutes and even more.

Again, the link from Kejetia to Komfo Anokye Roundabout which is considered free is even not left out as hawkers and some traders are gradually encroaching it.

Funny enough, the main road from the Komfo Anokye Roundabout to the entrance of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital is sometimes turned into a market by hawkers.

The main effect of all these unfortunate human activities is possible loss of life as there is no free flow of traffic which obviously prevents ambulances especially and other emergency cases from getting access to the hospital.
