The Ministry of Roads and Highways headed by Hon. Amoako Atta has issued an official Statement few hours after the Doli to Bole Road was washed away by Flood on 17th September 2023.
The Grievous incident has limited travel across the Western Belt of the country.
Road Users in the Upper West Region, Upper Parts of the Savannah Region including Damongo, Sawla, Kalba, Tuna etc have to resort to Kintampo Highway to other major markets and towns in the country.
The Ministry of Roads and Highways acting through the Ghana Highway Authority, regrets to inform the general public that a significant washout has occurred at Doli in the Bole District, 25km away from Sawla on the N12.
Our preliminary investigations suggest that the washout was caused by a broken dam by the side of the Road.
Motorists from Wa and its surroundings traveling to the South are advised to turn off at Sawla and use the Sawla – Fufulso Road to connect the N10 (Techiman -Kintampo Road).
Motorists going to Wa from the South, should use the Techiman- Kintampo Road and turn off at Fufulso junction and use the Fufulso -Sawla Road to Sawla and subsequently to Wa and beyond.
Motorists from Wenchi to Wa are to use the new Longoro to Kintampo Road on the N10.
We assure you that our engineers and technical team are working diligently to address the situation as quickly as practicable.
We greatly appreciate your patience as we work towards ensuring your safety and the restoration of normal traffic flow.
