Click to read all about coronavirus →

Residents of SCC in the Ga South Municipality of Accra are lamenting over an uncompleted bridge that links the area to Ayigbe Town.

A resident, Nana Osae, who spoke to GhanaWeb disclosed that Deputy Health Minister, Tina Mensah together with the MCE of the area, Joseph Stephen Nyarni, commissioned the construction of the bridge in February.

He, however, noted that the construction came to a standstill shortly after it began.

The bridge, according to residents, serves as the main route into neighbouring towns as well as the road to the Weija Mall.

They have been forced to resort to a narrow unmotorable feeder road which is inaccessible whenever it rains.

Mr. Osae added that the uncompleted bridge has become a death trap since it collects rain and is likely to flood the area one day.

Parts of the country, namely Accra, Tema, Kumasi and Obuasi are currently on a 3-week lockdown due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Some Ghanaians have begun to express worry as the country heads to the rainy season with no end in sight to the global pandemic.
