BE/R: Yeji pontoon bounces back
Engineers working on the broken-down pontoon at Yeji in the Pru East district of the Bono East Region have completed repair works on the ferry after almost a week of shutdown.
The ferry became faulty after a storm hit it following a down-pour while berthing, thereby, displacing it last Sunday, March 19, 2023.
The ferry has begun working today Tuesday, March 28, 2023, however, and made the first trip to Makango in the Savanna Region this morning.
Twum Barimah, Accra 100.5 FM’s correspondent for Pru East district, told the host of the Ghana Yensom morning show, Odeyeeba Kofi Essuman on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, that the engineers finished working on the breakdown ferry on Saturday, March 25, 2023.
Earlier, Classfmonline.com reported that scores of commuters were stranded at Yeji in the Bono East Region, over the breakdown of the pontoon that ferries commuters across the Volta Region to the Savanna Region, with drivers and passengers reeling.
Twum Barimah said drivers prefer using the pontoon to cross the river en route to Salaga, Chereponi, Tamale, Bimbimbilla, Tamale and neighbouring West African countries among others.
