The development which includes reconstruction of road pavements to attain a 7m carriageway width with 2m shoulders on each side, construction of bridges, culverts and other drainage infrastructure will be completed in 36 months from the day of commencement.
The Kenyan Government secured a US$ 500m loan form the World Bank to help finance the construction project. The terms of the credit were negotiated and secured through the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure.
