The residents of Dawhenya in the Ningo Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region, have been complaining about the bad nature of the Dawhenya to Afienya link road which they say has been neglected by successive governments.

The road is an easy connect from Dawhenya to the Akosombo road but it is in a bad condition. 

On Friday morning, the residents organised themselves and blocked the main Aflao road at the Dawhenya junction.

They burnt vehicle tyres on the road and pushed a container onto the middle of the road to block it.
