Travelers on the Nyakrom -Asikuma road in the Central Region, have appealed to the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) and the Department of Feeder Roads (DFR), to fill the potholes and repair the damaged portions of that road, to avert accidents.
The passengers classified the Nkum ? Asikuma stretch of the road forming part of the Nyakrom ? Asikuma Highway, as the most dangerous portion, describing it as a death trap.
One of the passengers, Mr. I.K. Yampson, a retired educationist and opinion leader of Breman Brakwa in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District, who spoke to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Nyakrom expressed fear about travelling on it.
Another passenger, Mr. Francis Akahoho Atsu, a Media Practitioner, noted that the tarred portion of the road from Nkum to Asikuma had developed deep potholes, which did not augur well for drivers who did not know the road to travel at night.
Also, the untarred portion of the road from Nyakrom to Nkum had become so slippery due to the rains, and that drivers had to spend about 30 minutes to cover 300 metres stretch of the road, which had turned muddy.
