The recent rains wreaked havoc on the Sawla to Bole highway, rendering it impassable due to the collapse of the Doli bridge.
Responding swiftly, teams of skilled engineers from the Ministry of Roads and Highways and the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) have managed to create a makeshift bypass to restore usability to the road.
While a more permanent solution to replace the damaged bridge is in the works and slated for completion in the coming days, the current effort serves as a crucial interim measure to make the road accessible to motorists.
The reopened route is presently accessible to tricycles, small cars, and pedestrians.
During a recent visit to inspect the bridge’s construction, the Deputy Minister of Roads and Highways, Hon. Thomas Mbomba, emphasized the importance of caution among drivers.
He reminded them that the temporary bypass is just that – temporary, and it’s a one-way path and therefore urged Motorists to exercise care and vigilance while utilizing it.
He noted that the ministry is diligently working towards a permanent fix and an expedited reopening of the road.
