The National Disaster Management Organization(NADMO) says it will conduct a full assessment of the Akuapim Ridge after a mudslide on the Aburi-Accra road on Friday evening.

Over two hours of heavy rains triggered the mudslide causing travel disruption.

The mud covered the Aburi-Accra stretch of the road near Ayi Mensah. Officials of NADMO, and the Ghana Police Service moved in to mitigate the impact.

“We believe after the clearing the NADMO officials and other engineers will go and look at it and do the assessment and give a proper appraisal of the situation and the way forward,” the Public Relations Officer of NADMO George Ayisi told Starr News.

In 2016 government awarded a contract to construct a wire mesh to control the falling rocks along the Ayi Mensah-Peduase Lodge-Aburi road.

Valued at about GH¢12 million, the project includes putting a steel mesh over the slope to be held by anchor bolts, to be followed by a second mesh, a high tensile steel mesh.
