Ahimakrom appeals for a bridge on River Subri

By Michael Boateng, Sunyani - Ghanaian Chronicle

The people of Ahimakrom, a border town in the Dormaa Municipality have appealed to the government to provide a bridge for them on the Subri River to facilitate easy transportation of persons and farm produce among others, during the rainy season.

Ahimakrom is a farming community noted for the cultivation of food and cash crops such as cocoa. The community is always cut-off from its neighbouring villages when it rains with the Subri River over flowing its banks.

Motorists and persons who ply the road find it difficult crossing the river to the other side, whilst some vehicles have their engines destroyed by the water in their attempt to cross.

The Assemblyman for the community, Mr. Solomon Opoku told Brong-Ahafo File that the situation was having an adverse effect on the local economy because their products are always locked up.

Mr. Opoku, therefore, appealed to the authorities in charge to come to the aid of the people of Ahimakrom to provide them with a bridge to save them from their predicament during the rainy season to help improve their economic status.
