Residents of Chorkor heaved a sigh of relief after Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West Constituency, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful constructed what she described as a floating bridge for the community three months ago.

During the ceremony, the minister assured residents not to be bothered about the bridge in rainy seasons as the floating bridge will automatically move up to pave way for rushing water above its level.

This Chemu bridge connects residents of Chorkor and Shiabu which makes it easier for them to walk to and from various communities.

Last Sunday’s heavy rains has cleared the 'unbreakable' floating bridge leaving commuters stranded.

Chorkor residents who witnessed the event screamed in awe as they watched the flood carry the bridge away.

In the video captured by GhanaWeb camera, the flood carried along with some filth within the community, a situation that mostly results in the outbreak of cholera.
