Government has embarked on expanding the busy Kenol-Sagana-Marua to a dual carriageway.
The 84 kilometre stretch will be made into a four-dual carriageway according to the Transport CS James Macharia who toured the area today.
There was a heated debate on which one between the Kenol-Sagana-Marua or the Kenol-Murang’a-Sagana should be given priority.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will soon launch the construction of this multi-billion project.
The African Development bank approved a loan of Sh23 billion for Uhuru government to undertake this project.
The expansion project is part of a larger undertaking to link the Northern Corridor (Mombasa – Malaba) to the LAPSSET Corridor that links Lamu port to South Sudan and Ethiopia through Isiolo / Northern Kenya.
