It said “the state of the culvert poses danger to motorists and has become necessary to close the section of the road to safeguard lives and properties, and given the inaccessibility of the Tsito-Anyirawase section of the Accra-Ho Highway, the Ghana Highway Authority has arranged an alternative route as follows; from Dededo/Asikuma Junction to Ho motorists are to take a right turn on the Juapong-Abutia-Sokode Road through to meet the Sokode roundabout to Ho.
A Personnel of the Ghana Police Service will be available to assist with directions.
