Ekiti to begin construction of second flyover bridge

By John Odunjo

“The bridge is expected to be completed in 24months”

Ekiti State Government has approved the construction of a one-kilometer 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, said that the development was part of government’s agenda to rapidly improve infrastructure in the State.

Olatunbosun said 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 the bridge would add aesthetic value to the state capital.

He spoke in Ado Ekiti while briefing journalists on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting where he reiterated the commitment of the present administration to ensuring that all roads in the State were motorable and well maintained.

The commissioner said, “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.
