The Governor gave the assurance on Tuesday in Ibadan, in an address to traders and residents on Beere, Orita-Merin, Agbeni-Ogunpa Road, which he said would be expanded to ease perennial traffic congestion in the area.
The latest project is in addition to the ongoing dualisation of Idi-Ape-Akobo-Odogbo Barracks Road; dualisation of Agodi-Gate-Old Ife-Adegbayi Road, with spur to Alakia-Ibadan Airport; as well as dualisation of Saki township road, in Oke Ogun.
The government had also recently approved the reconstruction of 10-km Eleyele-Akufo; rehabilitation of Akufo junction-Eruwa Road; and expansion of Oke-Adu-Agodi-Gate-Idi-Ape- Iwo Road interchange.
These projects are being financed through the Federal Government’s infrastructure development loan, internally-generated revenue sources and contractor funding.
Ajimobi said: “We must consider the interest of the majority who will benefit from the project. I can only appeal to our people to consider the loss of their property as a sacrifice. But, I want to say again that they will be compensated.
“Count the number of people that will gain from this project as skilled and unskilled workers, much less of road users who will have smooth passage after the road has been completed.”
