Osun state government has announced the temporary closure of the Lameco-Agunbelewo section of the Osogbo-Ilobu-Ifon Road.
This followed Thursday’s flag-off of the 9.8km federal government Road for reconstruction by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
In a statement released by the Commissioner for Works and Transport, Engr. Remi Omowaiye, the government said the temporary closure was necessitated by the need to replace inadequate box culvert on that section of the road.
