Osun State govt to close Olaiya intersection for nine months
Osun State Government, yesterday, said that it would close the Olaiya Inter-section with effect from today, February 18, 2021.
According to a statement signed by Special Adviser to the Governor on Works and Transport, Olatoke Olaniyan, the closure, which takes effect at 11:00 a.m., will mark the commencement of the construction of the flyover across the intersection.
“This is to bring to the attention of residents and motorists that Osun State government will from 11:00 a.m., on Thursday, February 18, 2021 close down for a period of nine months the popular Olaiya Intersection to pave way for the immediate construction of a 625 metres flyover to arrest the incessant and avoidable accidents and traffic gridlock associated with the area,” the statement read.
“In order to ensure economic activities are not totally paralysed and ensure free flow of vehicular movement within and around Osogbo, diversion routes have been created and road diversion signs installed. Men of the FRSC, NPF, NSCDC & OYES will be assisted by officers from the office of transportation in the Ministry of Works and Transport, and other paramilitary organisations in the construction to guide and direct motorists.”
