A bridge linking Cape Coast to Twifo Praso in the Central Region has collapsed.
Videos and photos available to JoyNews show that a section of the road has completely caved in rendering the route inaccessible for motorists.
In an interview with JoyNews’ Richard Kwadwo Nyarko, residents said the bridge collapsed because a river known as Surowi had overflowed its banks.
The bridge is known to serve commuters from Cape Coast to Jukwa and also from Dunkwa-On-Offin.
Tourists who were heading to the Kakum National Park are stranded and have returned to their various destinations.
The water flooded a building of the Exim Bank CEO which is close to the bridge. Vehicles which were parked on the compound of the house are said to have been washed away by the flood.
The damage did not only affect residents around the area, but also residents at Ankaful and its surroundings.
The road linking Cape Coast to Ankaful has also been taken by the flood, leaving commuters and motorists stranded. There has not been any report of casualties.
Meanwhile, officials of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) and the Ghana Highways Authority are at the scene assessing the situation to find a temporary solution to the problem.
They said the situation is very worrying and hoped there’s no downpour which might cause devastation in the area.
