The residents of Anwomaso High Tension-Emena Boadi and its environs have appealed to government to reconstruct the bridge over the Adotim and Tawiah River to promote economic activities in the area.
According to the residents a well constructed bridge will provide the drivers unhindered access during the rainy season and prevent their usual practice of diverting through to Anwomaso High Tension and other parts of the communities during the rainy season.
In addition traders and government workers in the two sister towns find it difficult to cross to their working places at locations beyond the bridge.
During a visit to the area,Akwadaa Nyame found out that bridge had been submerged as the two River had overflowed its banks and therefore vehicles could not ply the road.
“the two River overflows its bank anytime it’s rain as a result of heavy rains but the size of the bridge is not wide and long enough, hence the flooding on the road during those times” Mr Jones Antwi Bosiako resident of Anwomaso High Tension and a member of Landlords Association, explained.
He appealed to government for the reconstruction of the bridge to accommodate the flood waters, claiming that, one of the bridge which was built 20 years ago had never been rehabilitated while the other one could not hold the water when ever it rains due to poor construction.
The Adotim River takes its source from Ejisu municipality while Tawiah River takes its source from Oforikrom Municipality.
The Two River further passes through some municipalities and some districts in the Ashanti Region.
The assembly member in the area who double as a presiding member of the Oforikrom municipal Assembly Hon Frank Frimpong alias F.F blamed the contractor for such a shody work because the drains constructed at the roadside has developed some cracks while some parts of it’s had wash away.
