Bole-Bamboi-Wa Highway Cut Off Over Floods


Flooding in the Savannah Region has cut off the Bole-Bamboi-Wa Highway, leaving passengers stranded.

The spillage of the Bagre Dam and days of heavy rainfall have resulted in parts of the road being washed away, and the NADMO Municipal Director has advised using alternate routes to avoid the risk.

For those travelling between the south of Ghana and the Upper West region, the Bole-Sawla section of the road has been washed away, with a bridge linking Bole and Doli communities completely destroyed.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Highways Authority has provided alternate routes and is working to address the situation as quickly as possible.

Read the full statement on the alternative route

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.

Thank you for your cooperation.
