In the month of august of 2017, a contract document was signed to allow Bechtel, a US company to start the construction of a high speed highway trunk road from Nairobi to Mombasa in 2018 linking the capital with the main port much more efficiently. The road is set to be a four lane road with provisions to expand it to a six lane trunk road in the future. This owes to the long time it takes traveling from Nairobi to Mombasa which is 10 to 12 hours because of carriage trucks. The high speed highway is said to provide motorists at maintaining constant speeds of 120 kmh which reduces the travel time to about 4 hours.
The road is set to supplement the Madaraka express railway which also helps in easing traffic by reducing the amount of trucks on the road. The expressway is set to pave way for further trading in the country by providing faster means of transport and more in terms of volume that the Kenyan road can transport to our neighbouring landlocked countries like Uganda and further to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
This will then enhance infrastructure and ensure growing of the major cities and the region in general as more industries will be put in place along the road. There is also the completion of the Isiolo-Moyale road which has reduced travel time from over three days from Nairobi in the muddy terrain to about 10 hours now in a well tarmacked road.
Growth of the cities means that more housing units with be required in the Nairobi metropolitan area. The Longonot area provides such proximity to both Naivasha and Nairobi. The Longonot gate development project is also just on the foot of Mt Longonot providing a breathtaking view of the mountain and its environs. We also have a major project Makuyu ridge in Murang’a County in metropolitan Nairobi.
