NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 15 – The government is seeking investors to construct and maintain four roads at a cost Sh325 billion.

Speaking during the Kenya Public Private Partnership Road Investor Conference Transport Principal Secretary John Musonik says the move is set to expand the road network in the country.

“With about 160, 000 Kilometers of road, only 14, 000 are paved which amounts to 9 per cent, the government cannot do it alone that is why we are seeking the help of the private sector,” he told investors at the conference.

Among the four roads include the maintenance of the Thika Super Highway, construction and maintenance of the Nairobi-NakuruHighway, Nairobi – Mombasa Highway as well as the 600 metres Nyali Bridge.

“Transport corridor implementation is a top priority for the government and we are keen in investing in the sector,” he explained.

Musonik says the roads will be maintained through tolling services that will be implemented in the next five years after the roads are complete.

However, the tolling services for the southern bypass and the thika super highway will be implemented in the next two years.
