The Osun State Governor, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola has flagged off the construction of the Olaiya Flyover in Osogbo.
Speaking at the flagging off, Governor Oyetola promised that the flyover project would not affect other dividends of governance in the state.
According to the governor, “the project was necessitated by the need to enhance quality of lives of our people and improve infrastructure in our city that is becoming more populated and boisterous on account of increasing business activities.
He said the project would address growing traffic around major routes in the city particularly, Olaiya axis, as well as preventing frequent cases of accidents in the area.
In a remark, Osun State Commissioner for Works and Transport, Mr. Remi Omowaye said the proposed flyover was a 4-span of 15m each, with two underpass bays for U-turning to Fakunle/Justrite and MDS/Post Office.
Mr. Omowaye maintained that the flyover would be financed through Alternative Project Funding Approach and the project would be completed in the next nine months.
