The stretch of the road, linking Asikuma and Amanfopong, major cassava producing communities in the district, has developed deep potholes and the continued deteriorating is a source of worry to the farmers.
Nana Atto-Apem Boadi Ayeboafo, Ankobiahene of Amanfopong, Told the Media that, the bad nature of the road was creating marketing problems for the farmers.
He said drivers were also taking advantage of the situation to charge exorbitant fares.
Nana Atto-Apem said it was common to see farmers trekking with their food crops to Breman Brakwa to sell.
“It is my fervent appeal to the assembly, the Department of Feeder Roads and the government to put this road into good shape, to help improve food production in the area,” he said.
The Ankobiahene also appealed for the construction of a permanent bridge over the Okye River at Okyesoa and called on sand winners to halt their nefarious activities under the Okyeso Bridge.
