The Ondo state government will immediately commence rehabilitation work on the Owo-Ikare road which has been in a bad condition for sometimes now.

The decision was taken at the end of the last state executive council meeting.

The road which links the south west to the northern part of the country had been a source of worry to many travellers.

There had been public outcry on the state of the road and government’s alleged insensitivity to the plight of motorists on the route.

Worst hit part of the road are the Upenme and waterworks axis which had become big gullies.

Briefing newsmen after the council meeting, Taofiq Abdulsalam, Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure also said some other roads in the state were approved for repairs and reconstruction.

The roads include: 8.1 km Igbaraoke/Ibuji in Ifedore Local Government Area, 5.4km Oke Ogba in Akure South Local Government Area and 8km Bolorunduro/Fagbo road in Ondo East Local Government Area.
