Landslide causes emergency closure of Aburi road

The lane from the Peduase Lodge to Ayi Mensah on the Accra-Aburi Road has been closed to vehicular traffic.

The Ghana Highway Authority announced the closure Sunday following landslide on Sunday.

The Authority says its assessment shows possibility of the rocks falling further on the slope.

Meanwhile, the Ayi Mensah to Aburi-bound double carriageway has been turned into a single carriageway which will be open to traffic.

“The Peduase Lodge to Ayi Mensah section of the road has suffered some slope failures and rock fall which invariably affect the existing highway.

“The slope has been assessed to have potential for further rock falls and slope failures.”

As an alternative, the Ghana Highway Authority advised motorists to use the Dome -Kitase-Berekusu Road.

It said further information will be made available to the public in due time.

“Motorist are kindly advised to corporate with the Police, Traffic Wardens at Ayi Mensah and Peduase Lodge ends of the Road and also follow directional signs that would be placed along the route to ensure safety.

“Any inconvenience that may be caused is deeply regretted.”

The development comes a week after similar incident forced the closure of the road on the same side.
