[Photos] Collapsing bridge forces closure of Sokode-Bame road in Volta Region

A collapsing bridge on the Sokode to Bame road in the Volta Region has forced a temporary closure of the road.

Concrete pillars on which the bridge is mounted have weakened and developed serious cracks exposing iron rods.

Cracks have also developed on the surface of the road on the bridge while concrete barricades on the bridge have also been falling off.

The National Disaster Management Organisation in Ho warned drivers and road users to avoid that stretch of the road due to the weak nature of the bridge.

The Ghana Highway Authority later issued a statement announcing the road has temporarily been closed to vehicles until further notice.

“This has become necessary due to the falling bridge over River Tsawoe between Akrofu Agorve and Akrofu Xeviwofe along the Sokode-Bame Road,” the statement issued by the Authority explained.

Drivers and travellers are therefore to use either the Anyirawase-Bame Road or the Ho-Klefe-Akrofu Road to their destinations, the statement added.

The Authority said the necessary steps will be undertaken to remedy the situation.
