It was observed that the drivers who join the bridge from the Juapong stretch would veer off the road when they get to where the pothole is and this could lead to head-on collision.

Some of the drivers who ply the road said the danger that the pothole poses to them are enormous.

They explained the potholes have been there for years without authorities attending to it.

The Asuogyaman District Chief Executive, Samuel Kwame Agyekum when contacted explained that, even though the bridge is not under their jurisdiction, the Assembly has taken the matter up.

He explained the bridge is under the Ghana Highway Authority but the Assembly has written to them to fix the pothole.

Mr. Agyekum assured that he has not heard anything from the Eastern Regional Highways and would therefore follow up to ensure the problem is fixed.

The DCE said because the bridge is situated in their jurisdiction, they [Asuogyaman District] would be the first casualty in case of any accident on that stretch.
