Circulation has been halted along the Sangmelima- Djoum road in the Dja and Lobo Division of the South region of Cameroon following the collapse of a makeshift bridge linking the two towns early this Wednesday.

According to reports, the bridge collapsed at about 5am this Wednesday morning around Nko, a village in the locality, dividing the road into two, thus paralysing the movement of both people and goods.

The collapse of the bridge constructed in wood has been attributed to heavy downpours recently in the locality.

Reports say the Arab contractor company overseeing the tarring of the Sangmelima-Djoum road has embarked on the quick construction of a temporal bridge to re-instate circulation within the shortest time possible.
