Some Ghanaians have appeal to gov’t to go back to old streets names

A cross section of Ghanaians have expressed mixed reaction regarding the street naming in Ghana, particularly in Accra here. Fuleratu Gariba has been finding out whether or not it has been of help to Ghanaians. According to some of them, it is of no use whiles others termed it as useful whenever one needs a direction to a place, but then make a plea to the government to maintain names of some old roads in Accra for easy identification.

Naming streets is the most vivid way of identifying them, and the most commonly used historically because of its suitability for any street layout. Name selection, however did pose many problems that lengthen the implementation process. This solution works well only when a city evolves slowly enough to allow municipal authorities to devote some time to naming decisions.

In the absence of Street Names, numbering streets is another recommended approach in most cases.

One way to simplify the process of establishing street coordinates is to group the streets into neighborhoods or zones, which can then be assigned a sequential number with a prefix.
