Here are more aerial shots courtesy of PR Moments/Side Nnise. This photo shows the Canitoan Section.
You can observe the hills where the road cut across.
In this photo below, the new diversion road cuts across the hills. Youngsville Subdivision can be seen in the background.
This map below is not official but is close to the road route. Encircled sections are still not yet constructed.
When completed, motorists travelling between Opol and Uptown Cagayan de Oro can take this route avoiding traffic at both Iponan and Bulua area.
