President Uhuru Kenyatta's visit to Mombasa and Kilifi counties to announce new road and infrastructure construction that will clear Mombasa's traffic and make connections to the coast faster and more dynamic, boosting the local economy.
This is the intention of the Government, in the words of Kenyatta who was accompanied by the Minister of Transport James Macharia and the Undersecretary of Infrastructure Gideon Mung'aro.
Kenyatta met with the Governors of Mombasa and Kilifi, Hassan Joho and Amason Kingi and explained the new projects to them, after reviewing the progress of the construction of the bridge that will connect the bypass of Mombasa airport to the south coast and will finally solve the problem of the ferry for those from tourist destinations such as Diani and Tiwi who use the international airport.
It is a project of 2.7 km of bridge that will connect the two sides of the creek beyond the port, so without needing to be excessively high. Delivery time, it is hoped (and especially hoped by the current government) by the 2022 elections.
After the inspection on the Tsavo road between Malindi and the Gate Hall, Kenyatta announced the construction of another asphalted artery, which will lead from Langobaya to Mariakani, on Mombasa-Nairobi and will also connect the town of Bamba. Together with the new bridge in Baricho that will connect to Marafa, where another recently asphalted road arrives, there will be a direct inland connection that will allow those heading towards Lamu or Garsen not to pass by the coast, congesting Mombasa, Kilifi and Malindi.
"We have kept our promises to tarmac these roads - said Kenyatta during the final press conference in Kilifi - I also spoke with the Governors of the smaller roads. Now that the larger ones have been planned and work is underway, we will focus on the connecting roads".
Previously, the President told the locals that his administration would launch electricity projects while it is up to the County Government to make sure residents have guaranteed water as they have received a grant from the World Bank to upgrade their facilities.
Governor Kingi also asked that the road connecting Kilifi and Mombasa through Bamburi and Rabai should be paved to reduce congestion on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
"The President told Minister Macharia to give priority to the roads," the Governor explained to journalists.
