When you listen to the government speak, you get the sense that they’ve ‘overachieved’ or are very good in PR. According to official figures, Jubilee has built more than 2000 km of roads and has hundreds of kilometres planned before their first term ends.
They have doubled Kenyan households electricity connection, and increased school connection from 35% to 98%.
Plus many other big things.
Are Kenyans too blind to see these developments or has mega corruption overshadowed everything else?
Whatever the case, you will be pleased to learn that the construction of Nairobi’s 13 km Outer Ring road is going on well. The project has fallen behind schedule a few times, with the initial cost estimate rising by Sh8 billion.
The road is being done in four sections.
The first starts from GSU Junction at Thika Road to Kariobangi Junction. The second section will run from Kariobangi to the Kangundo Road junction, while the third section will pick up from there to Donholm junction.
The fourth part will cover Donholm to the Eastern Bypass Juction.
Here’s a simulation of how the road is expected to look like.
And now some progress photos.
