Accra-Winneba Highway Collapses at Okyereko Following River Diversion

Spread the love

The main Accra-Winneba Highway has caved in, severely disrupting vehicular traffic after the Ayensu River was diverted by a contractor working on the Kasoa-Cape Coast Highway.

Commuters were left stranded on Thursday morning as floodwaters from the Ayensu River created a large gulley across the highway.

Citi FM’s Calvis Tetteh visited the site and encountered frustrated commuters who demanded urgent repairs and accountability for the contractor responsible.

The diversion of the river also led to the flooding of over 150 houses in Gomoa Mampong on Wednesday, June 5, 2024.

The diversion affected a bridge spanning the Ayensu River, which originates from the Eastern Region and crosses the Accra-Cape Coast Highway at Gomoa Okyereko in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region, eventually flowing into the sea.
