The road between Busunu and Daboya has been cut off by floodwaters after a downpour on Saturday, September 11, 2021.
This means no vehicle can travel between the two towns.
Though the road was flooded last week, some vehicles were able to drive through.
The road is the only route from the capital of the North Gonja District to other towns like Tamale, Buipe, and Kumasi.
When Citi News visited the scene on Saturday, a kia truck that tried driving through got stuck and was gradually sinking in the water by Sunday morning.
Without a bridge on the white Volta, it means there is no route to access Daboya and many other communities with a vehicle, as the only other road that links them to the North East Region is also flooded.
Meanwhile, military personnel deployed to the district to assist commuters have since been withdrawn.
Stranded commuters who spoke to Citi News last night called for an urgent solution to the problem.
The Savannah Regional Director of the National Disaster Management Organisation, Mohammed Tohir, who spoke to Citi News, said some communities in the North Gonja and Bole districts have also been flooded.
Last year, some 14 communities were flooded in the North Gonja District when the Bagre Dam was spilled.
Thousands of people were displaced and several hectares of farms were submerged.
This year, residents of the district are suffering again from flooding from the White Volta.
Other flooding incidents
An over 12-hour downpour in the Upper West Region a week ago flooded irrigation sites, farmlands, and communities along the Nadowli-Tangasie highway.
The affected communities were cut off from the rest of the Nadowli-Kaleo district.
The flood washed off major roads in the region, with many commuters getting stranded due to the situation.
Major bridges on the Wa-Hale road that connect a number of communities to Wa the Upper West regional capital were also affected.
Portions of the already deplorable Wa-Tumu road were also washed off.
