MOMBASA, KENYA: A report by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) shows that the 35 kilometer Mariakani-Kaloleni-Kilifi road which has been under construction since July 2012 is nearing completion with 93 percent of works done.
The report dated August 18 this year prepared by KeNHA director general Engineer Peter Mundinia shows it has so far cost Sh1.78 billion and will be complete in September this year.
Deputy President William Ruto and Infrastructure PS Dr John Musonik inspected the project and expressed satisfaction with the progress achieved.
The key road will provide a short cut to Kilifi and Malindi from Nairobi as motorists will no longer need to enter Mombasa from Nairobi to travel to the Kenyan north coast.
This is phase two of the Mombasa northern 50 kilometre bypass road from Mariakani to Kilifi through Kaloleni town funded a total cost of Sh2.2 billion.
Phase one of the project from Mariakani to Kaloleni measuring 19 kilometres was completed way back in 2011.
