Kenyans to Wait 5years For The Nairobi-Mombasa Highway.

Kenyans will have to wait for five good years for the completion of the Mombasa-Nairobi highway according to the Kenya National Highway Authority (KeNHA). The authority issued a statement on Friday saying that the construction of the 473-kilometre highway would take five years beginning from the time of its commencement.

“The construction of the project will likely take 5 years to complete and work will commence upon completion of studies, designs, negotiation and closure of all financing arrangements,” read the statement.

The authority further added that no contractor has been given the tender to construct the highway hence still on the search for one. The statement read:

"The Contract for construction of the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway has not yet been awarded to any entity. KIND presented a Pre-Feasibility Studies Report for the development of the Highway based on a PPP model on 29th July 2022, and they are open to submitting a Privately Initiated Investment Proposal (PIIP) in line with the requirements under PPP Act, 2021,” KeNHA added.
