LOKICHAR-LAMU ROAD DEVELOPMENT APPROVED
The Cabinet today approved the development of the Lokichar- Lamu crude pipeline and upgrading of the Eldoret (Leseru) – Lokichar Road to pave way for the transportation of crude oil in Lokichar oil fields by both rail and road to Mombasa to be refined. In the same Coastal town of Mombasa, Kenya Ports Authority (KPA)has put pen to paper a Ksh. 26B loan to expand container terminal in Mombasa. Elsewhere, the decongestion of Nairobi city has gained momentum with the singing of a financing agreement with the World Bank for the construction of Nairobi’s first double-decker highway linking Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Nairobi-Nakuru highway which is expected to kick off later this year. INFRASTRUCTURE is foundation of Kenya’s Vision 2030. Commitment and effort dedicated to this critical sector of our economy by Jubilee administration is commendable!
