People living at Orji and attending to businesses inside Owerri town are presently facing a major transportation challenge as the construction work along that area has peaked. This is especially at the East Gate Hotel junction where the construction of Imo state’s premier over head bridge is currently in progress.
The construction has resulted in serious traffic especially at peak periods when a lot of people are either going to work or returning. It is worse in the evenings when a lot of people are heading home. A tricycle operator told me he consciously avoids taking that route till around 10pm when it must have cleared out. Some other people resort to going home after work via Amakohia to avoid getting stuck in the traffic.
