We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

The World Bank in partnership with county government has commissioned rehabilitation of a 500-metre GK Prison’s road in Kitengela at a cost of Sh60 million.

The road stretches from Athi-River/Namanga turnoff in Kitengela town to Athi River GK Prison’s gate and the aim is to decongest the town by creating alternative route and creating parking spaces.

Speaking during the launch on Monday evening, deputy governor Martin Moshisho said the decongestion of Kitengela town is long overdue as the incessant traffic has been cause of concern for residents and business people.

Moshisho termed it a culmination of a campaign promises made governor Joseph Lenku in his campaigns prior to last year’s general elections.

“Our resolve is to ensure that the people of Kajiado see the fruits of development as outlined in our campaign manifesto,” added Moshisho.

He assured development partners of continued support in such initiatives that are expected to spur economic growth by creating accessibility into the rural and urban areas of the county.

Alex Kilowua, CECM in charge of Roads said the decongestion of Kitengela town will create 200 more parking slots to boost earlier numbers that had been created by the new Kitengela bus park, which was constructed at a cost of Sh100, early in the year.

“The half a kilometer cabro road will serve as a bypass that will create alternative route from the highway, and ultimately ease traffic in town,” he said.

At the same time, Kilowua revealed plans by the county government to rehabilitate the 1km stretch on the Deliverance-Railway Road at a cost of Sh200 million early next month.

In 2012, the World Bank approved Sh27.89 billion in funding for the Nairobi Metropolitan Services Improvement Project (NaMSIP).

The project is aimed at strengthening urban services and infrastructure in the Nairobi Metropolitan Region for an estimated 1.5 million urban residents.

It was developed to help steer Kenya towards path of becoming a middle-income country and is one of the goals of Nairobi Metro 2030 vision.

Nairobi Metropolitan Services Improvement Project will supplement the work of previous World Bank-sponsored urban improvement projects, including the Kenya Municipal Programme and the Kenya Informal Settlements Improvement Project, each of which have received Sh8.45 billion Kenyan Shilling in World Bank funding over the last seven years, Moshisho said.
