Hello guys,

Fitter line in Ashaiman is known to be a place where most car owners both commercials and private get their cars fixed, they can even remold parts of damage cars or cars involved in accidents to make them look new. There are also scrap dealers, welders, aluminum coal pot makers etc. One disadvantage thing about fitter line is that, it is considered as a slum because of its nature, some workers have mounted wooden structures for shelters and it is also located below electric pylons, there is also a large refuse dump there where people around dificate.
