In line with the Government’s commitment to improve road infrastructure and remove non-tariff barriers, an impediment to the facilitation of faster movement of goods and services; the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) is implementing the Mombasa - Kwa Jomvu Road Project in the Coast Region to expand the current single 2- way roadway to a dual carriageway with 6 lanes from Mombasa to Kwa Jomvu a section of Mombasa – Mariakani Highway.

Dualling of the Mombasa – Kwa Jomvu is jointly financed by the Government of Kenya and the African Development Bank (AfDB) at a cost of Kshs. 6.1 Billion. The Mombasa – Mariakani Highway project will certainly revolutionize and transform the economic competitiveness of Mombasa and the neighboring counties and countries.

Dualling of the approximately 11.3 Km road, a section of Mombasa – Mariakani will provide access to the Port of Mombasa and facilitates freight transport originating or destined for Nairobi and other inland regional cities of countries in East and Central Africa connected by the Northern Corridor.

Scope of works being undertaken include: Expansion of the current single 2-way roadway to a dual carriageway with 6 lanes from Mombasa to Kwa Jomvu. Three (3) Grade separated intersections at Changamwe, Mikindani junction, and Kwa Jomvu. Non-Motorized Transport (NMT) network, and adjacent truck parking areas including service lanes to improve accessibility to surrounding business areas and to Port related activity centers such as Container Freight Stations (CFS) located along this section of the road.

will be announced soon as a Christmas gift to Mombasa.
:D:D Good Lord!

That's a genius idea. Instead of buying my mpango a Christmas gift, I'm going to meet her this evening wearing the widest smile and I'm going to tell her that on Christmas I'll promise to buy her some electronic gadget sometime in future. She is going to love it!

Brilliant!

Don't blow a gasket. Ni kwa muda tu, ndugu.
The traffic state hapo ni juu ya the MG railway overhead bridge's piers create a chokepoint on the diversion bottlenecking traffic flow.
Add that to Kenyan drivers' lack of discipline and unnecessary hurries to God-knows-where, this produces a hot mess of a traffic jam.
Lakini the rigid pavement on the egress lane is almost done curing. Itafunguliwa soon jam ipungue hapo kwa daraja.
