Good news for the Bagamoyo-Malindi motorway: the feasibility studies are almost complete and the African Development Bank (AFDB) is looking for financial partners to find the 400 million dollars that, together with the 300 million already allocated by the African bank itself, will serve to cover all the 445 km of the section between the Tanzanian town north of Dar Es Salaam and the Kenyan one north of Mombasa.
The idea is to begin construction of the 215 km on the Kenyan side, rebuilding and widening the entire stretch of road from the border to Malindi in early 2018. At the same time, in Tanzania, work will begin on improving the 230 km of the Tanzanian side, which is already very good from Tanga on the border with Kenya (Long Lunga Lunga).
According to what the African Bank told the Chinese press agency Xinhua, the actual construction of the entire Malindi-Bagamamamoyo two-lane motorway is planned for the end of 2018.
Engineers and experts are currently carrying out the latest environmental impact surveys.
The road as intended by AFDB and the two governments should stimulate the main economic activities along the Indian Ocean coast, such as tourism, cross-border trade and socio-economic development, as well as improving road transport infrastructure along the coasts of Kenya and Tanzania, in particular between Mombasa and Dar Es Salaam, to which Bagamoyo is already connected by a good road.
Despite the political crisis and the wait for elections. bis, the government does not stop and continues its plans to upgrade the roads along the coast.
