Following the relentless efforts of the State Government towards ensuring the Speedy Completion of the Ijebu-Ode-Itamapako-Epe road, contractors have confirmed that the State of the road has reached 65% Completion Stage.
In an interaction with newsmen, the Project Manager, Craneburg Construction, Engr. Amine Tawk disclosed that barring any unforeseen circumstances, the road will soon be completed as it is presently 65% ready for use, adding that when completed, not less than 30 communities stand to benefit from the economic proceeds of the road.
It will be recalled that the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun during one of the inspection tours of roads across the State pledged that the 14.7km Ijebu-Ode-Epe road would be commissioned in the second half of 2021.
In his reaction, the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Ade Akinsanya pointed out that the move to construct the road was borne out of the desire to stimulate economic activities, secure and create a safe environment for business to thrive, as well as improve the quality of life of the people.
He added that the road when completed in the second quarter of the year would enhance accessibility to different communities along the area and reduce the burden of vehicle maintenance.
