The Ministry of Roads and Highways acting through the Ghana Highway Authority says a significant washout that occurred at Doli in the Bole District, 25km away from Sawla on the N12, in the Savannah Region was caused by a broken dam by the side of the road.

Consequently, the Ghana Highway Authority is advising motorists from Wa and its surroundings traveling to the South 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.” a statement issued by the Public Affairs Division said.

“We greatly appreciate your patience as we work towards ensuring your safety and the restoration of normal traffic flow,” it added.
