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 approval which was given at the State Executive Council meeting is a manifestation of the commitment of the present administration to ensuring that all roads in the State are motorable and well maintained.
The development was part of state government agenda to rapidly improve infrastructure as 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.
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 bridge is expected to be completed in 24months.
