Hundreds of workers and students have been cut off Accra after flooding rendered an uncompleted bridge impassable.

Rains which began at dawn have washed into the low-lying area locking down residents moving from Klagon to Sakumono to access Accra.

Some students who spoke to Joy News’ Matilda Wemegah, said their major problem has to do with the state of a bridge whose construction began 8 years ago.

The bridge was the link from Klagon to Community 12 to give options to motorists who do not wish to use the Ashaiman over-pass.

The bridge is the main route out of Klagon since two other access routes are also not accessible.

One of them is a bridge at Accra Abattoir which was washed off during the June 3 flood two years ago.

The resident said an underpass at Ashiaman has also been flooded since Tuesday’s rains.
