The Ghana Highway Authority (GHA), would from Monday 10th March 2014, close the Adomi Bridge to all vehicular activities to undertake major rehabilitation works.
A message copied to the Ghana News Agency on Tuesday said the closure would last for 24 months and motorists are to use ferry services that had been provided at Senchi and Akrade to cross the Volta River from 0600 hours to 1800 hours daily.
The statement said maximum length of a vehicle that would be allowed on the ferry would be 18 metres.
It said truck drivers wishing to use the ferry are to obtain a weighing certificate from GHA axle load stations at Apaaso, Akrade or Juapong before being allowed onto the ferry.
“Alternatively, vehicles from Accra going to Ho and beyond may use the Accra-Sogakope-Adidome road and vice versa”, the statement said. GNA
What this means is that we will keep people posted as to the most effective way to reach our site. Those traveling from Accra will go to the Senchi boarding site and take a taxi from the opposite side. The fees are as follows: fpr motorbikes 1GHC, for cars 10GHC, for buses 12GHC and for trucks 15GHC. We have not learned if pedestrians will have to pay a fee. From what we are seeing we will have a small boat service right at the north side of the bridge so we will keep people posted.
