Kenya Breweries to fund Sh200m road in Nairobi
Kenya National Highways authority (KENHA) has entered into a partnership with Kenya Breweries Limited (KBL) to rehabilitate two key roads around Ruaraka along Thika Superhighway.
The project will be undertaken at a total cost of Sh200 million, to be funded by KBL. It will see both Ngumba and Baptist roads reconstructed by April. The initiative is aimed at enabling easy access of the estates around Ruaraka.
Speaking during a brief inspection of the ongoing project, KBL managing director, Joe Muganda said: “For over a decade now, we have witnessed the debilitation of this road.”
“Whilst we recognize that our core business is not in road construction, we realise that our success is reliant on the growth and sustainability of the communities around us. The support of this project therefore speaks to the totality of our citizenship agenda,” said Mr. Muganda.
KBL decided to fund the project after receiving approval of the road’s development plan from the Nairobi City County.
KENHA will, on its part, construct a mini-roundabout, which will ease access to the opposite side of the Superhighway.
