Commuters plying the Accra - Kumasi highway on Friday evening had to endure several hours of very slow-moving traffic.

From the Pokuase area through to Anyinam, the traffic on Friday night was more severe between the Bunso and Anyinan stretch.

According to GhanaWeb sources, some commuters had to spend over three hours in the traffic jam which started around 5:00 pm.

Despite the heavy traffic on the Kumasi bound side of the road, the Accra stretch was relatively better.

Several commuters who were caught in the situation could not help but take to social media to express their frustration.
