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

The diversion affected a bridge that spans the River Ayensu, which starts in the Eastern Region and flows across the Accra-Cape Coast Highway in Gomoa Okyereko in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region before emptying into the sea.

The National Disaster Management Organization (NaDMO)’s Gomoa East District Director, Robert Hackman, advised passengers to take bypasses at Winneba while restoration work is being done.

The diversion also caused the flooding of over 150 houses at Gomoa Mampong on Wednesday, June 5, 2024.
