EKSG Approves Construction of One- Kilometer Ajilosun to Okeyinmi Flyover Bridge, Rehabilitation of Ikere- Ise- Emure Road

Ekiti State government 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.

The State Commissioner for Information, Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun who
made this known in Ado Ekiti while speaking 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.

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.”

He said that “the bridge is expected to be completed in 24months.”
