For a long period of time, the port of Mombasa had no enough capacity to handle alot of goods which arrives at the port from middle East countries including petroleum products, maize and other goods that are essential for human life.
To increase the capability of the port of Mombasa to hold large volumes of goods, the government of Kenya led by the incumbent president His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta initiated the construction of Second Container Terminal Project at the Port of Mombasa.
The project which is also known as the CT2 project is one of the President Uhuru's legacy projects in coastal Kenya that is projected to improve the economic productivity of Mombasa county.
According to relevant sources of information, the Kenya Ports Authority has already confirmed that the CT2 project has been fully completed by the Japanese contractor known as Tokyo Construction Company limited.
The Second Container Terminal Project in Mombasa, Kenya has been described by maritime stakeholders as a game changer for Kenya. It will create more job opportunities for the residents of Mombasa county. In addition, the project will double the handling capacity of goods at the port of Mombasa and thus will make Kenya a self-reliant country.
