Okere DISEC shuts Apirede-Somanya road over frequent crashes

The Apirede-Kwamante-Somanya road has been temporarily closed down by the Okere District Security Committee (DISEC)

The Apirede-Kwamante-Somanya road has been temporarily closed down by the Okere District Security Committee (DISEC).

The DISEC explains that closure has become necessary due to the frequent fatal accidents happening on the road.

Head of DISEC Daniel Kenneth signed a release to that effect.

“The general public and motorists who ply the Apirede-Kwamante-Somanya road are being informed of the temporary closure of the road by the District Security Committee effective October 7, 2022.”

He asked motorists to use the Adukrom-Aseseeso-Trom Junction road.

“Motorists traveling to Somanya and beyond are to use the Adukrom-Aseseeso-Trom Junction road whilst the District collaborates with Feeder Roads and National Road Safety Commission to improve the safety of the road.”

Motorists use the Apirede-Somanya road due to the poor nature of the Koforidua-Nkurakan road and construction works on the Aseseeso-Adukrom road.
