(a) Ile Ife Selected Township roads,
(b) Ikire Selected Township roads,
(c) 11km Lameco Junction (Osogbo) – Agunbelewo – Okinni – Ilobu – Ifon Osun
The State Government is also reassuring the general public that the Iconic Fly Over Bridge at Olaiya will be opened to traffic in a matter of weeks.
The Government is mindful of the inconveniences the general public is being subjected to since the commencement of construction of the flyover Bridge for the past Eight (08) months.
The State Government appreciates the commitment, cooperation, support and endurance of Osun people during this period and will leave no stone unturned to ensure expedient delivery of the flyover, observing global best practices.
As we are approaching the dry season, the State Government will soon embark on the massive Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of the majority of our roads in the State and will attend to the rehabilitation of those roads that were badly affected due to the diversion of traffic during the construction of Olaiya Flyover, especially Zenith Bank – Union Baptist Church – Odi Olowo Road which will be reconstructed fully.
