Since President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto was re-elected for the second term in 2017, they embarked on developing the country. They have built different projects across the country. However, one of the areas that the Jubilee government has done a great job is in the road sector.
Uhuru's government has constructed and repaired several roads across the country. In this piece am going to share with you some of the major projects that Uhuru's government has completed in the coast region and those that are still under construction. All these projects will ensure that President Uhuru Kenyatta's legacy is always remembered.
The first major project is the Dongo Kundu bypass highway. The road is still under construction and it will connect the west-to-south connection of Mombasa's mainland without having to cross the island's boundaries. The road will cover a distance of 11 kilometers starting form Miritini to Ng’ombeni. This road will cost Kenya 12.5 billion shillings.
In Likoni, crossing the likoni Channel can be a hardship because of the long wait times. The government built a floating bridge to connect Mombasa Island to the mainland, which residents use to go about the island. This floating bridge has greatly reduced the congestion at the Kenya ferry. However, this is a temporary project and it might be demolished in the future when the government finds a permanent solution.
Thirdly, another major project that is currently under construction is the changamwe interchange. It is a critical section of the Mombasa-Mariakani road project, which is also being worked on by Third China Engineering Company, and has contributed to the alleviation of unemployment by absorbing many local youngsters to assist in the provision of unskilled labor. The interchange will help in reducing traffic jams in Mombasa.
Apart from the aforementioned project, another ongoing project in Mombasa is the Shillings 2.7 billion Port Reitz/Moi International Airport access road, which will serve as a vital link between the newly-constructed second container terminal and the city's central business district.
