The importance of this road is enormous. The dualisation of the 48km project starts at the Old Garage section of Osogbo to Dagbolu International Market and terminating at Ikirun Junction. This segment is advantageous because it will cater for the larger volume of traffic coming to the market.
The second segment connects the existing road coming from Osogbo to link the Ikirun junction end of the Osogbo-Dagbolu International Market. The third segment is from Ikirun Junction to Ila Odo Kwara State Boundary.
Aside from providing seamless transportation for people and goods, it will open up the Osun Central Senatorial District that has a large concentration of Local Government areas like Ifelodun,Odo Otin, Boripe, Boluwaduro, Ila and Towns . It will also open up that axis becoming a major gateway to the northern part of the country such as Kwara, Kogi, and Abuja etc.
The spate of work on the project is rapid as the contractor is poised to deliver on time. On the spot assessment of the project will confirm that standards and specifications are being adhered strictly to.
