Bunso Canopy Walk - The Bunso Canopy Walkway in the East Akim Municipality of the Eastern Region is to bounce back to help promote domestic tourism in the country.

According to the report from a team of experts made up of officials from the Ghana Institute of Engineers and Ghana Tourism Authority who visited the site two weeks ago, the rehabilitation work has been executed in consonance with the recommendations.
The Site Manager of the Canopy Walkway, Baffoe Peprah, who uncovered this in an interview with a GBC Sunrise FM correspondent in Koforidua, said the team is going to finalise its report and submit it to the Ghana Tourism Authority for the necessary steps to be taken.

He noted that the team was impressed about the work carried out by the Walkway Officials and expressed the hope of opening the site to the public very soon.

Mr Peprah admitted that the collapse of the bridge on the Walkway has really affected the staff financially since it has not been in operation for the past three months.

The company, he said, is finding it difficult to pay its staff because they do not generate revenue to use to run its administration.

Mr Peprah sympathized with those who sustained injuries when the tragic event occurred and said all the necessary measures have been put in place to safeguard tourists both local and foreign.

He assured the public of attractive packages when the site resumes operation.

The Site Manager commended the public especially the Regional Coordinating Council, Ghana Tourism Authority and the Regional Security Council as well as the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) for their quick intervention when the incident occurred.
