A bridge linking Sokoban Ampabame in the Atwima Kwanwoma District to other communities, has become a death trap to residents of the area.
Recent torrential rains collapsed part of the bridge which stretches over the Ampabame stream, creating a gully on its side, thus, making it precarious to use, especially as the rains erode its strength steadily.
This has forced motorists to use the narrow strip on one side of the bridge.
Inspecting the bridge on Monday, 14 May 2018, Nana Okyere Tawia Antwi, the Chief Executive Officer of Atwima Kwanwoma, said the road, including the bridge, had been awarded on contract.
He told Adehye FM’s Elisha Adarkwah that the damage has been assessed by the technical people who accompanied him to the site.
Nana Okyere Tawia said pressure will be put on the contractor to prioritise work on the bridge to prevent any disaster.
He was accompanied to the site by the Ashanti Regional Feeder Roads Director, Kofi Arhin.
