Governor of Osun State, Mr Gboyega Oyetola has appealed to motorists plying the Olaiya road to cooperate with government by ensuring that they make use of alternative routes as the road remains closed for nine months.
He also urged traders at the axis of the project to endure the temporary difficulty the construction of the flyover will cause on the activities of their daily businesses.
The governor made these known on Thursday while inaugurating the commencement of the flyover at the popular Olaiya Junction in the state capital, Osogbo.
According to Mr Oyetola “Realising that the closure of this road will bring some temporary difficulties, we have made enough provision for alternative routes to serve vehicular needs.
“We are therefore appealing to owners of businesses around the project site to bear with us, as we will try as much as possible to minimise the inconvenience” he said.
Speaking on why his government embarked on construction of the flyover, Oyetola said “The implication of this is the growing traffic around major routes in the State and specifically, the Olaiya axis, leading to waste of man hours by residents in our State.
“Sadly too, there have been countless cases of accidents of commuters. I have personally witnessed few of these unfortunate incidents. We cannot afford to waste more lives.
“Besides, response to the infrastructure needs and demands of a growing city is a proactive exercise. This flyover is therefore a project for today and the future” he said.
He added “When the flyover is completed, we are assured that it will significantly eradicate traffic hassles and make the lives of our valued citizens more secured.”
