A. ROADS
– The Federal roads from Osara down to FCE is receiving some attention by FERMA. The repairs are however more of scratching the surface than laying the expected bitumen in the damaged portions
– The bad roads from FCE to Okene township, upward to Secretariat is still in very bad shape.
– The above situation is also applicable to the federal roads from Total Okene to Obehira junction where the new road started. FERMA are merely scratching the surface and putting stones, sand and light bitumen where they think necessary.
– The good news however are the roads from Agasa junction towards Iruvucheba that are been constructed with modern technology, and of high quality. Apart from the drainage that are being constructed new, the laying of Ashplant are excellent. The best of them all is the Inioziomi – Kuroko – Eika road that is receiving best of quality Ashplant laying.
