NAIROBI, Kenya, July 4 – Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia says tourists will enjoy a seamless ride to the Maasai Mara National Park once road works initiated by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) are completed.

This follows the awarding of a tender by the roads agency for repairs and reconstruction of the 82 Kilometre Narok-Sekenani Gate (C12) that traverses the world famous park.

Macharia says the project will cost the Government of Kenya Sh2 billion and its construction will begin within the next three weeks.

He stated that already, emergency works are going on to ensure that the road is in motorable condition to ensure free movement of both local and international tourists.

The move has also been lauded by the County Government of Narok.

Macharia pointed out that road is very busy in August as tourists travel there to witness the legendary annual wildebeest crossing.

At the same time, the CS Macharia has announced that China Wu Yi Construction Company will oversee the construction of the Lamu-Witu Garsen Road that traverses the Lamu and Tana River Counties.

The 135 kilometre road will cost the Government Sh10.4billion and starts at Garsen before terminating in Mokowe, Lamu County.

The road is an important artery to the LAPSETT Project and its construction will open up the economic potential of the two Coastal counties.

It is expected that youth from the local communities will benefit from secondary employment as the road works are undertaken.
