The government of Ekiti State has approved the construction of a 1kilometer flyover bridge from Union Bank in Ajilosun to First Bank at Okeyinmi in Ado Ekiti and the rehabilitation of the Ikere-Ise-Emure road.
Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun, Ekiti State Commissioner for Information disclosed this in Ado Ekiti while briefing newmen on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting, reiterated the commitment of the present administration to ensuring that all roads in the State are motorable and well maintained.
Rt. Hon. Olatunbosun said that the development was part of government agenda to rapidly improve infrastructure in the State, adding that the projects would ease traffic flow, improve socio-economic activities of the areas and make lives and property of people more secured on the roads while adding aesthetic value to the State Capital.
According to him, the flyover bridge was initially proposed from Irona to Mathew (Saint Paul) but later changed to commence from Ajilosun (Union Bank) and terminate at Okeyinmi (First Bank), Ado-Ekiti after a critical review of the traffic volume and gridlock along Oja Oba Market to Ajilosun axis.
The Commissioner said that the bridge is expected to be completed in 24months.
