The bridge located between Tafi Atome and Anfoe Aveti over Dayi River is in a state of disrepair and is at risk of collapse, causing disruptions to economic and transport routes from Ho through Tafi Atome to Kpando and other parts of the Oti region, including Dambai.
According to Mr. Ossoh Alphonse, Opinion Leader of Tafi Atome, the bridge consists of two separately constructed bridges, one built by a German firm and the other by Voradep.
The first bridge easily overflows its banks, creating an alternative route, while the new metallic bridge constructed by Voradep remains unfinished.
The Ghana News Agency observed that both sides of the bridge were almost carved in, with cracks developing on the structure.
Additionally, heavy rainfall causes the river to overflow the bridge.
Madam Maud Azameti, a businesswoman, stressed the urgent need for attention to the bridge's condition, stating, “This bridge has become a death trap and it is something that scares those of us who use this road.”
If the situation is not addressed promptly, it could lead to challenging transportation, especially from Kpando to Ho, as alternative routes are considerably longer.
