Bridges in Ghana: Adomi Bridge
The Adomi Bridge is a popular vehicular and pedestrian bridge that spans across the magnificent Volta Lake and connects the Volta region to the Eastern region making it one of the most important and commercially busy bridges in Ghana.
The bridge has a total length of 334 metres making it the second-longest bridge in Ghana behind the Sogakope Bridge, also in the Volta region. The design of the bridge includes a hinged steel arch bridge with a special deck suspended by cables.
Since its completion in 1957, the Adomi Bridge had been under the authority of the Asuogyaman local assembly however in April of 2019, a consensus was reached between the local assembly, the Ghana Highway Authority and Ghana Tourism Development Company for Adomi Bridge to be classified as a tourist site due to the large number of tourists that visited the facility on a daily basis.
