Mombasa Land Prices Surge On New Road Projects


Major infrastructural projects in Mombasa West have sparked a rush for property in the area, leading to a sharp increase in land prices.

The Mombasa-Miritini Road, as well as the Airport and Port Reitz roads, are being expanded into dual carriageways to rid them of perennial traffic jams. The Sh23 billion projects are expected to be completed in three years.

Similarly, the construction of the Sh327 billion standard gauge railway, has contributed to an appreciation of land prices in the area.
