On the Accra-Tema Highway, a truck carrying LPG flips over

Due to an accident on the road, vehicles have been urged to utilize the La-Teshie-Nungua-Tema beach road route of the Accra-Tema Motorway segment.


A truck carrying liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) rolled over onto the median strip on the highway near the abattoir, prompting the directive.


They claim that because of the “hazardous nature of the substance,” using a different route has become necessary.


The issue is now being managed by members of the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) and police officers.


A towing vehicle is on standby to recover the rolled over truck from the road, according to a Facebook post by the police on Thursday.

“In the meantime, the LPG in the truck is being evacuated into another vehicle, which will take several hours,” said the police.


Traffic flow is also being controlled by employees from the Airport Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD).
