Many drivers and motorists plying that stretch therefore became stranded as they could not move to either side of the road.
A car which was traveling from Kumasi had to make a return to avoid been washed away by the flood waters as a result of the collapsed bridge, Zuuri told Yagbon News.
“Am quite surprised how it happened, because no one expects that such a small valley could caused such havoc on the road”, he indicated.
Mr Azuuri said that the collapsed bridge is having a heavy toll on commuters and called for an immediate action to be taken to put back the road on a good shape.
