The major purpose of the exercise is to closely observe the site of the proposed dualization of Old-Ife Road-Airport service road to ensure it accommodates the potential traffic implication of the proposed transformation.


One notable location of importance to His Excellency is the probability of a feasible alternative route to service the traffic volume of Lagos/Ibadan Express way which has to be altered at its intersection with Old-Ife Road at Onipenpeye(Saw-mill) bridge.
