The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) will construct highways passing through Kiambu county in the next three years after entering into a partnership deal worth Sh38 billion with Kiambu county government.
Speaking after a meeting with Governor Ferdinand Waititu in Kiambu town yesterday, director general Peter Mundinia (pictured) said contractors have already been contracted adding that some of the works are already going on in some highways.
The roads are James Gichuru-Rironi road (Sh16 billion), Western bypass which passes through Wangige-NdenderuRuaka (Sh17billion), RuiruGithunguri- Uplands Road (Sh4 billion).
“In total, there are 13 roads that are going to be done including the junction near Blue Post Thika interchange where the authority has acquired the road reserve which will help in easing traffic in the area,” he said. Waititu urged the authority to give county youth jobs.
