Some residents also said the cause of the collapse of the bridge was because a river known as ‘Surowi’ which overflowed and flooded nearby houses. It is said that people traveling from Cape coast to Kakum National Park are having difficulty getting there because of the collapsed bridge.

 Officials from the National Domestic Management Organization (NADMO) and the police are at the site trying to ensure the safety of the residents. They are also finding a way to enable travelers to get to their destinations.  Ghana Highway Authority urges travelers to use the Cape coast -Yamoransa (N1)-Assin Fosu-Twifo Praso (N81) road, instead of the Cape coast- Twifo Praso road to ensure their safety.
