The Town With No Roads To Travel - Residents Of Nyariga Cry Out To Government For Help

Residents in Nyariga in the Upper East region have been cut off from other towns especially their district capital and Bolgatanga, because their roads have been destroyed because of the recent torrential rains.

The Zaare - Nyariga road have been destroyed by floods in the area as well as the bridge on the road. Workers such as teachers, nurses and other service providers are unable to travel to other towns for work. The residents are unable to go to their district capital, Bongo.

Drivers travelling from Bongo to Bolgatanga using that road which is much shorter, have to use a much longer route which is full of potholes. According to residents in the area, this situation happens every year but the condition has not been resolved.

The assembly member of Nyariga, Dominic Akurugu has admonished the government to prioritise the reconstruction of the road and the bridge. He said the situation has been reported severally to the district and follow-ups have been made.

He said he was once told that a contract had been awarded to commence the reconstruction. However, the contract was later revoked from the contractor and the road keeps getting worse.
