Some public roads in Accra will be temporarily closed tomorrow Friday March 6, 2015 due to the impending 58th Independence Anniversary celebrations.

The roads include the 28th February road from CEPS Headquarters to the Castle junction, Osu Ceme­tery traffic light on the Lokko Street, Castle Road from the AU Circle to Osu Cemetery traffic light and the Starlet 95 Road through to the Ministries traffic light.

A statement signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police and the Director-General of the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD), Angwubutoge Awuni, said vehicles with embossed stickers carrying spectators to the Independ­ence Square would be allowed to pass through the var­ious police check points.

It stated that no vehicles would be allowed to park at unauthorised places or drive through these block­ades, noting that security vehicles carrying dignitaries would be allowed after thorough checks while Traffic Police Officers would be on hand to direct and assist motorists to the appropriate car parks.

The statement said that traffic from the 28th Febru­ary Road emanating from Labone, Osu, and La, head­ing towards the Central Business District, will be diverted to the Lokko Street at the Castle traffic light to link up with the Oxford Street.

It also said on the High Street, traffic will be divert­ed to the Liberia Road through to the National Theatre and further link up to the Ring Road towards Osu.

The statement however advised motorists to take note of the arrangements and plan alternative routes before embarking on their journey, adding that the general motoring public should cooperate with the police to ensure a successful anniversary.
