Motorists and passengers in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District of the Central Region have called on the Ministry of Roads and Highways to aid in reshaping their road.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Brakwa, Opanin Isaiah Kwame Yampson, an opinion leader, described the road from Brakwa through six communities to Odoben, as the most dangerous route in the Central Region.

He said from Odoben to Domeabra needed culverts for the streams along the route, while gutters were equally needed to help drain water flooding the road.

The opinion leader, affectionately called “I.K.”, said the Brakwa – Domeabra route was another “hard” road to travel, adding, if immediate work was not undertaken problems may occur.

He said the bad nature of the route includes deep potholes stretching for over half a kilometre with a slippery section on the same road as well.

Opanin Yampson said the potholes spanned from Odoben through Domeabra and that the bad shape also spanned from Domeabra through four communities to Brakwa.

He urged the sector ministry to institute appropriate measures to help avert accidents in the region, especially the Odoben – Domeabra – Brakwa main road, by urgently making provisions for the reshaping of the nine-kilometre route.

The opinion leader expressed concern that due to the damaged bridge spanning Ochiso River, vehicles travelling from Akim Oda in the Eastern Region to Asikuma in the Central Region had to make a detour around the bridge through other towns including Brakwa – Domeabra – Odoben.
