Heavy rains in the Jukwa district of the Central Region have left the Cape Coast-Twifo Praso route unusable to vehicles.

The Ghana Highway Authority has asked vehicles on the Cape Coast-Twifo Praso road to take caution since the bridge linking the towns at Jukwa has been washed out by flooding.

Travelers are consequently encouraged to use the route from Cape Coast to Yamoransa.

The government, on the other hand, confirmed that traffic had been diverted to avoid cars becoming delayed at the site.
