The Ghana Police Service says some roads in the capital will be closed
ahead of the football match between Ghana and Sudan this Sunday September 6, 2009.
This is to minimize inconvenience to sport fans, invited guests and the general public.
A press statement signed by DSP Kwesi Ofori, Director of the Public Affairs Unit at the Ghana Police Headquarters and copied to PEACEFM, said from 8:30 am on the scheduled date, some specific roads will be closed until after the match.
The statement specified that the road from the AU Circle traffic light, close to the Osu cemetery, to Starlet 95 at the Ministries traffic intersection will be closed.
"Motorists from the AU Circle towards the Castle road moving from the Osu cemetery traffic intersection will be diverted onto the 2nd and 3rd Avenue roads, take a detour through the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and join the Abdul Nassar Road," it said.
The statement advised motorists from that direction to use the 28th February road towards Independence Square.
"Motorists on the Liberation road from Akuafo Circle (37 roundabout) are to join the Liberation road at National Theatre through to 28th February road onto the Independence Square," it said.
The statement further indicated that only motorists with accredited stickers will be allowed to pass through police cordoned areas to the stadium car park.
"The VIP car park at the stadium can only be used by persons with special invites. The Tennis Court car park is reserved for security service vehicles and the Independence Square for big buses and small cars," it added.
The statement warned that owners of vehicles parked at unauthorized place would be fined, and asked for the cooperation of the public to ensure free flow of traffic within the stadium and its environs.
