Photographs obtained by CrossRiverWatch from some parts of Cross River suggests that the state government has begun minor intervention works on two federal highways in the state in a bid to alleviate the plight of motorists plying the routes.

Sources say very bad spots in the Iwuru and Adim axis of the Calabar – Ikom – Katsina Ala highway and the some sections of the Odukpani axis of the Calabar – Itu – Ikot Ekpene highways have of recent seen a facelift.

The spots according to some motorists who plied the routes were excavated, stone piled and smaller aggregates poured and compacted by Faith construction company limited to make it passable, thereby cutting down the number of man hours wasted on the route especially at the Iwuru axis.

It will be recalled that the administration of governor Ben Ayade recently came under fire for the state of the roads with works commissioner, Dane Osim-Asu telling CrossRiverWatch that the federal government was owing the state over 20 billion Naira for the interventions it has done on federal roads.

Commuters often divert into smaller feeder routes while some travelling to the northern part of the state choose to go through Ebonyi state due to the bad nature of the Obubra axis which is currently being rehabilitated by SERMATECH with the expected delivery date being January 2017 though findings by CrossRiverWatch reveal less than 20 percent of the job has been done.
