A bridge on the main Cape Coast-Twifo Praso road in the Central Region has caved in, posing a threat to residents.
The bridge situated at Jukwa washed away Friday as a result of a heavy downpour in the area.
Ghana Guardian’s Central Regional correspondent, Ekow Essel, reported that the incident has rendered the said stretch completely inaccessible.
“The washout has rendered the Cape Coast-Twifo Praso road inaccessible. The road has been cut off by the rains at the Jukwa bridge,” he reported.
He advised travellers to use the Cape Coast-Yamoransa stretch as an alternative root.
“Motorists travelling between Cape Coast and Twifo Praso are therefore advised to use the Cape Coast – Yamoransa – Assin Fosu road as authorities mobilize to solve the problem as soon as possible,” the report added.
