Olaiya Flyover: Osun to do three-hour demo closure on Friday

as part of pre-construction protocols 

The Government of the State of Osun is set to commence the construction of the Olaiya flyover with a three-hour demonstration closure between 2pm and 5pm on Friday January 29, 2021.

Recall that the government had earlier announced its intention to construct a flyover across the Fakunle-Olaiya, Odi Olowo-Olaiya, Akindeko-Olaiya and MDS-Olaiya intersections as part of measures to address traffic and safety issues in the axis.

In a statement issued by the Commissioner for Works and Transport, Engr. Remi Omowaiye, the construction areas would be closed for three hours on Friday, January 29, as part of the protocols for the commencement of the construction.

He stated that the closure is a demo closure, which will last for only three hours.

“We are closing the roads around the construction area for only three hours, between 2:00pm and 5:00pm, as a form of trial-performance for traffic control during the period of the construction.

“The period of the demo closure shall have the presence of 110 officers from the Federal Road Safety Corps, Civil Defence Corps, the Police Force and the state’s O’Tram officers, strategically positioned along the diversion routes and critical locations (like Okefia, Olaiya, New Orisunmbare market area, Jaleyemi, Aregbe, Akindeko and Akinlade junctions, Capital, Lamido, etc.) to ensure compliance and orderliness.

“Citizens are enjoined to cooperate with the security and traffic management apparatuses during this exercise, as outcomes of this exercise will form a baseline to subsequent traffic management routines during the period of the construction”, Omowaiye stated.
