As part of efforts of the present administration to fast-track development and enhance the economic growth of Osun State, Governor Ademola Adeleke has approved the rehabilitation of major roads across the state to ease the free flow of traffic and reduce wear and tear on vehicles plying the roads.
Governor Adeleke noted that since some major roads across the state have been in a deplorable condition for some time now, impeding the free flow of traffic and increasing the number of hours people spend in transit, it became necessary for something to be done.
As contained in a statement by the Governor’s Spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the Coordinating Director, Ministry of Works and Transport, Mr Olusola Ajao said the governor gave the approval for the rehabilitation of the roads as part of his campaign promises to the people to make life better for them.
Mr Ajao said the selected roads which have been earmarked for immediate rehabilitation will all be completed within the first one hundred days of the present administration.
He explained that the rehabilitation of roads across the state will be a continuous one as the present administration under Senator Ademola Adeleke is determined to fix infrastructures for the benefit of all and sundry and to boost the economic growth of Osun State.
Some of the roads approved for rehabilitation include Akoda to Olaiya to Old Garage, Oke-Fia to Omobolanle area, Lameco/Oke-Onitea junction, and Stadium area in Osogbo.
Also approved is the John Mackay to Oke-Ayepe Costain Road in Osogbo and Akankan Junction to Agate in Ede.
Other works approved for rehabilitation include the reconstruction, beautification and upgrading of the State Secretariat Roundabout, renovation of the Governor’s Office, Bola Ige House and some chalets/clinics at the Government House, Oke-Fia, Osogbo.
Meanwhile, spot patching works have already started on some major roads within Osogbo, the state capital to ease vehicular movement and reduce the transit time of people.
