The Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) has temporarily closed the road from Sokode to Bame in the Volta Region.
According to the Authority, the closure has become necessary due to the failing bridge over River Tsawoe between Akrofu Xeviwofe along the Sokode-Bame Road.
Motorist travelling between Sokode and Bame have been advised to use the following route:
Anyirawase – Bame Road
Ho – Klefe – Akrofu Road
The Volta Regional National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) in a similar statement has also warned the public to desist from using the bridge which it said is about to collapse.
The closed road serves as the fastest route to join the Eastern corridor road in Kpeve. It is one of the major roads in the municipality and aids easy transportation of foods into major towns.
The residents are calling on authorities to fix the bridge as soon a possible to avert any disaster and also help make their travels easier and faster.
