A new tarmack road in the tourist areas of Malindi will improve accessibility to resorts and beaches. Kilifi County Governor Amason Jeffah Kingi inaugurated the commencement of the paving of the 5 kilometre long road from the town centre to Angels Bay, improving links in an area with at least three major resorts and many residential complexes, as well as linking it to another local village. A modern road will also boost the area for the construction of other facilities and activities, as well as improving the safety and speed of operation of any services and local commerce.
"It is a great satisfaction for those who, like us at Kola Beach, have been working for years to improve the accessibility and safety of Mambrui," comments Antonello Di Mauro, owner of Kola Beach Resort. "At last we are reaping the benefits of constant pressure to have this road, we have been asking for it for years and we thank the County Government for coming to start the work.
On the part of Governor Kingi, there is also a promise that the works will be completed on time as stipulated in the agreements, as well as checking that they are well done.
"We are particularly calling our contractors to their responsibilities," Kingi explained, "so that the projects we commence meet the required standards and are completed within the stipulated time frame. Otherwise we may have to blacklist the companies concerned, and those found to have committed malpractices will risk being sued by the Kilifi County Government.
Among the infrastructures still in place in the County and which it is hoped can be completed before the next round of elections due in 2022, there is also the tarmac road that will link the Malindi-Lamu to Ngomeni village, reaching the Italian San Marco space base and also allowing for a quicker arrival at the beautiful Che Shale beach, and there is also the coastal connection road between Malindi and Watamu, which unfortunately is progressing very slowly (about 1 km per year) and for which, before the Covid-19 emergency, it was planned to reach, on the Watamu side, Jacaranda Bay by the end of 2020 and on the other side the fishing village of Mayungu within this period.
