The road was a major one that linked many parts of Benin and was even an alternative route to Lagos from Benin City as well as a major route to other parts of Edo State.
Textile Mill Road is also an access road to one of the biggest auto spare part market Market in the state – the Evbareke spare part market.
In recent times, the long-stretch of textile mill road is riddled with pot-holes and ditches. This situation often lead to the breaking down of vehicles plying the road.
As with many roads in Benin city, Textile Mill roads is lacking in drainage system.
