Big relief as government builds 408kms of roads in densely populated areas of Nairobi

As it pursues its transformative agenda, the Jubilee government is constructing more than 408 Km of new tarmac roads in informal settlements and densely populated areas in Nairobi.

Cabinet Secretary for Roads and Transport James Macharia revealed this when on a tour to inspect the construction of the new roads that is already underway.

He said the government was undertaking the project to improve accessibility and service delivery, and to provide employment opportunities to local youth.

Macharia said the new tarmac roads are being built in Kawangware, Kangemi, Mathare, Korogocho, Dandora, Roysambu, Githurai, Kasarani, Kibra, Dagoretti, Kangemi, Mukuru, among other areas.

He said the project is 40% complete with 104kms already fully tarmacked and will be fully completed by December 2021.

The project is being implemented by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA).

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government has embarked on a major infrastructural development of the Nairobi City County which hosts the capital city and which is home to more than 4million Kenyans.

Two weeks ago, he stunned Kenyans when he opened several health centres at night in the densely populated areas and which were built in record time.

These health centres have already attended to thousands of residents many who did not have access to health services.
