Nigeria’s Ekiti State Government
has commenced construction of the new Ado-Iyin Road project after
decades of being abandoned. 

Governor Kayode Fayomi said the
road will be under construction by Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Company Nigeria Ltd (CCECC).“As a government, we understand and appreciate the
importance of good road network to our economic development. A good road
network will not only ease the stress of commuters but will also enhance the
marketability of our farm produce which is the mainstay of most of our people.”

The 7.25-km road project will be the first phase of
the construction work which will stop at the State’s boundary with Osun state.
Phase one of the road will be from Ado to Iyin; the second phase will be
from Iyin to Aramoko and the third phase from Aramoko to Itawure.

CCECC Southwest Regional Manager, Sewell Zhao, said
the company had started recruitment of workers for the project and that local
content would comprise employing at least 500 Ekiti people.

The project, expected to be completed in the next
24 months, is estimated to cost US $88m. According to the governor, the road,
when completed will put end to the series of accidents witnessed at Akannansan
on the old Ado-Iyin Road.

Additionally lighting will be installed to allow commuters to travel anytime without fear. Aduumno also disclosed that the Fayemi government will soon commence construction of some ring roads to reduce traffic in the state capital. They include Iworoko-Eyio-Igede Road and Ago Aduloju (Ado Ekiti)-Afao Road. https://constructionreviewonline.com/2019/03/nigeria-commences-construction-of-us-88m-ado-iyin-road/
