Movement of motorists was heavily impeded Thursday morning at the Kpone Barrier portion of the main Tema-Aflao N1 road due to flood waters following an early morning downpour.
Some motorists and their passengers complained of staying in gridlocks between two and five hours before making their way out of the situation.
The floods blocked the road in front of the Bel-Acqua Bottling Company where commuters virtually sailed through running waters.
The main Accra –Tema Motorway did not fare any better, as the rains forced a heavy gridlock that ensured vehicles moved at a snail’s pace.
A number of vehicles with very low clearance had to park for the floods to subside, while some others who braved through had their vehicles break down
Many suggested the situation could have been dire had it rain for very long hours.
Recent construction works and human activities, including the erection of buildings in spaces that previously accommodated runoff water, are at the base of the flooding.
