After a month of traffic interruption and even "wild" detours in the centre of Malindi, the entrance from the city roundabout to the centre along Kenyatta Road was reopened. The road had been closed because of the excavation work and laying of pipes to convey rainwater that for years has regularly flooded the roundabout during the rainy seasons.
The contemporaneity of the excavations and the problematic situation of the promenade, which it is hoped will have a solution before the beginning of the high season, have created some traffic problems in a period, that of the last few weeks, which has also been ravaged by the abundant rains that have fallen a bit along the coast and also in the town. Now, except for a small queue until the first week of December, the good weather should allow to settle at least temporarily even the last stretch of road to be completely rebuilt, that of the waterfront of the port.
"It takes at least 200 million shillings to redo the entire Malindi road network. The Government must put their wallets and arrange the work with the state of the road network authority." This is the appeal of the Parliamentary malindino...
This time it looks like we are through.
The Kilifi government gave the contract to a Chinese company for the first work of maintenance of the Mayungu road, which leads from Casuarina in Watamu.
