Several vehicles and about thousands of passengers are stuck at the Buipe bridge in the Northern region.
That road happens to be one of the bussiest roads in Ghana. Vehicles from the northern part of Ghana moving to the south and those from the south moving to the north all use this road. Vehicles coming from Burkina Faso, Mali and several other neighboring countries in the North all use this road. Regardless of this, the road is in a very bad state.
Passengers have been stuck there for over 12 hours, since about 8pm yesterday, 28th August till the next morning. Due to the recent rains in the country, the road has become very muddy and difficult to ply.
The water bodies in the area has engulfed some parts of the road as well. Thousands of passengers were seen walking to find the nearest town in the area to rest or find solutions to continue their journey.
