A section of the Cape Coast-Fosu-Kumasi Highway has caved in at Atonsu, near Assin Fosu in the Assin Central Municipality of the Central Region, making vehicular movement difficult.   

Residents said that section of the road had shown cracks, a sign of possible cave-in, for some years now.   

The Ghana News Agency observed that a tunnel, in which a nearby stream flows into an open drain under the road, had been affected by the damage, resulting in the soil becoming soggy.   

The situation has forced drivers plying the route to use only one lane of the road, creating heavy vehicular traffic.   

This has left many heavy-duty vehicles plying the Cape Coast – Côte d’Ivoire route stranded.   

The Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Nicholas Fiifi Baako in an interview with the GNA, assured residents and commuters of the Assembly’s resolve to solve the problem to ease traffic.   

The Central Regional Director for Ministry of Roads and Highways, Mr Samuel Akuoko said some road contractors would soon be engaged to get the road fixed.   

“We are in talks with the contractor working on the Adiembra road and he has promised to mobilise his men to site to get the broken bridge fixed. If that doesn’t work, we will get another contractor to fix it immediately,” he said.
