Ogun reconstructs roads destroyed by flood
The governor, in a statement yesterday, explained the various projects were the fulfillment of the pledge to ensure the reconstruction of roads in communities hit by the flood.
Among the roads completed were the Asafa-Ayegun-Ojofa, Molipa-Fusigboye, and Hospital roads in Ijebu-Ode, together with Baruwa Street in Sagamu. The 1.5km and 1.3km roads were built with appropriate drainages to avert a recurrence of tragic floods.
The projects were immediately opened for users, who commended the government’s efforts in the development of road infrastructure across the state.
The governor said: “Apart from the roads in Ijebu-Ode, work is ongoing on Odo Afá Road and Bridge, Agosasa in Ipokia, Awùjalè-Oke Àjé-Stadium Road in Ijebu-Ode and the 4.7km Oru-Awa-Ilaporu Road in Ijebu North Local Government Area, which is 75 per cent completed, as well as Oba Erinwole Road.”
Residents of Asero and Obantoko communities in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, have expressed satisfaction over the development as they also commended the government for the completed work on Fajol-American Junction-Gbonagun Road. The 7.2km road, an alternative route, is designed to reduce gridlock daily experienced by motorists on the Abeokuta-Ibadan Road.
