Residents at Ohwim Tigo Junction in the Kumasi Metropolis of the Ashanti region are calling on the authorities to fix their collapsed bridge which has become a death trap.
The bridge which links Kronum Abuohia to adjoining communities, according to commuters was constructed just about two years ago, but currently serving as a death trap.
According to them, taxi drivers are compelled to use a long deplorable route through Atafoa Forest before getting access to Kronum Abuohia, which could have been a shorter distance using the bridge.
Speaking to OTECNEWS’ reporter Ernestina Tuffour in an interview on Tuesday November 9, 2021 they said there have been a heavy traffic on Atafoa, Ohwim and Amanfrom road due to the collapse bridge
“It is very scary and affecting our business so the government should please intervene so we can also engage in our business,” some of them OTECNEWS.
What worsen the situation was that school children put their lives in danger using the bridge
“We are suffering, we go through a lot as a result of this collapse bridge we are in a terrible situation, one of the residents”
” When it rains, and you are still intown, its always a worry ,Mr Gaate said”
The residents therefore want the authorities to fix their bridge to ensure that no life is lost this time around.
