ADOMI BRIDGE CLOSES!
It's official. The Adomi bridge closed at 6am on the 10th of March. It has been quite an adventure figuring out which ways are the best to move around to go to market, Atimpoku or Accra. Small canoes have popped up all over taking people from Atimpoku or from the Afrikiko over to Akwamufie.
The latest and greatest ways to reach us and this side of the river are:
BY CAR: From Accra and most other areas follow all directions to Akosombo. Go to the Senchi ferry (About 20 minutes drive north of Kpong) and join the cue to ride the ferry. The fee is 10GHC. You will get off the ferry and follow the road straight or if it branches, go left.
BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
1. From Tudu station take an Akosombo trotro (mini van) and get off just after the Atimpoku roundabout (about a 2 hour journey). Make sure you ask the 'mate' to let you down at the bridge crossing. Go down to the river and join the cue to get onto one of the small boats crossing the river. The fee is 1GHC. On the other side of the river are taxis going toward Akwamufie. Take one of these to Black Star Lions site on the right hand side, approximately 2.5 kilometers from the bridge.
2. From Madina station take a Kpong trotro all the way to Kpong. Get onto an Akosombo trotro and follow the above directions.
3. Get on any Akosombo trotro and get off at the Afrikiko junction. Follow the road down toward the river and branch left. Join any one of the canoes going across the river to Akwamufie. Once there, walk up the road to the main road and then left to the taxi stand. Ask anyone you meet where the taxis are. Join a taxi and travel toward the bridge, getting off at Black Star Lions on the left. Most of the taxi drivers know us. The canoe and taxi are each asking 1GHC for transport.
