TDC to decongest Tema from January 10
The Tema Development Corporation (TDC), would from Monday, January 10, embark on a decongestion exercise in the Metropolis to remove all unauthorized structures around the central business area. In a statement issued in Tema by the Corporation on Friday signed by the Public Relations Officer, Miss Dorothy Asare-Kumah, the TDC warned that it would prosecute any person or group of persons who attempted to interfere with the exercise in any way. The statement said the exercise would cover the town centre and then the residential communities extending to Lashibi and its environs. It advised owners of illegal structures to, in their own interest, vacate these areas before the exercise took off on Monday. The statement explained that the illegal structures were too many around the Meridian Enclave in the town centre where vendors of second hand items, especially electronic gadgets had taken over the pavements and frontage of businesses. The statement said when owners of those structures defied several verbal warnings to vacate those areas, TDC issued written notices asking them to either vacate the areas or be forcibly removed. It pointed out that with the expiration of notice period, the Corporation had no alternative than to initiate the decongestion exercise to enable sanity to prevail in the metropolis.
