Don’t use Aayalolo lanes – AMA to motorists

Thu, 8 Mar 2018 Source: Class FM

The Greater Accra Passenger Transport Executive (GAPTE), through the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), from Wednesday, 7 March 2018, started enforcing laws that prevent other vehicles from using the Aayalolo bus services infrastructure and installations.

The AMA had placed a ban on the enforcement of the traffic and parking violation laws by Aayalolo but the ban has been lifted.

To this end, the unauthorised usage of Aayalolo lanes by unauthorised vehicles along the Accra CMB-Amasaman corridor will be a violation of the traffic policy of the Assembly and punishable by law.

Meanwhile, the AMA and GAPTE say they will continue to carry out their public education concerning the “identification of exclusive infrastructure and installations meant for the Aayalolo bus services by motorists and the general public, rules of engagement pertaining to exclusive infrastructure and installations meant for the Aayalolo bus services, legal provisions under the Local Governance Act (Act 940) and the legislative Instrument 1961 of 2009 that empowers the assembly to regulate, manage and enforce traffic regulations in accordance to the relevant laws.”

The AMA is entreating all to adhere to this provision to enhance mobility within the city of Accra.
