The National Development Implementation Technical Committee (NDITC) led by State House Chief of Staff, Nzioka Waita visited the Mombasa Southern Bypass to assess the construction progress.
The team also comprised of the Principal Secretary for Infrastructure, Professor Paul Maringa.
This road will provide the missing link from North Coast to South Coast thus easing traffic through Mombasa town.
“We’ve just completed our inspection of the MSA CBD – Kwa Jomvu Road, this 12km road includes the Changamwe Interchange and the Magongo Road to the Moi International Airport. This new network has made life so much better for residents, transporters and tourists” said State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita.
Waitta also said his team had wound up inspection of the ongoing Mwache- Tsunza- Mteza – Kibundani Bypass a.k.a the Dongo Kundu Bypass.
The road connects mainland Mombasa to the South Coast through the new Special Economic Zone.
It is set to uplift the economies of Coastal counties.
“I am leading a team of PSs on a field visit of the National Government projects in Mombasa County. First is the project that will restore Mombasa to Island status, the iconic Makupa bridge set to replace the 93-year-old causeway, the kshs 4.5 billion project is 56 percent done,” Waita said.
Waita added that a second group of PSs visited the Makupa Bridge in Mombasa County.
The Bridge is currently 44 percent complete.
The project will provide a safe environmentally friendly vehicular and railway crossing to replace the currently existing Makupa Causeway.
