Construction Of Ksh 25 Billion Project In Kwale

Infrastructure projects worth many billions of shillings are being built in various locations around Mombasa and Kwale counties.

Director General (DG) Eng. Simon Omwono of the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) reported that all contractors hired to build roads and bridges in the coastal region were on the job site and working to complete the projects by the scheduled completion dates.

The Ksh 4.5 billion Makupa Bridge and the Ksh 22 billion Dongo Kundu Bypass Highway, also known as the Mombasa Southern Bypass Highway, are two of the megaprojects, according to Eng. Omwono.

The senior KeNHA official praised the ongoing initiatives as "game-changers," stating that they would significantly help the people in the coastal region resolve some of their socio-economic issues.

He emphasized that the emphasis on infrastructure projects will go a long way in reducing the infrastructure gap in the region and that the roads and bridges are being built to provide convenient road access to the people.

Infrastructure, according to him, "is the cornerstone of socio-economic development in any country, and these two specific massive current projects reflect that."

The KeNHA DG expressed pleasure with the level of work completed thus far and declared that the government was dedicated to seeing the entire project in the coastal region through to completion.

Eng. Omwono claimed that the phase two Dongo Kundu bypass contractor, a Japanese consortium called Fujita Corporation-Mitsubishi Corporation, and the Makupa Bridge contractor, China Communications and Construction Co. Ltd, were speeding up construction on site.
