Port Reitz project comes with ribbons
President Uhuru Kenyatta recently officially launched construction of the $31 million Port Reitz/Moi International Airport Access Road. This project will not only raise Mombasa’ position as a more efficient logistics hub, but also make transit traffic much easier by allowing faster flow of goods.
TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) are overseeing the project. It is partly funded by the UK governmnet’s Department of International Development with $20 million while the Kenya government is putting up the rest.
Basically, the project means expanding access/offtake for the Kipevu West Container Terminal which will in turn increase the capacity and efficiency at the Port of Mombasa
When completed, the $31 million investment being implemented by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA), will support the expansion of the road to a dual carriageway and improve the existing Port Reitz and Moi International Airport access roads covering 6.4 kilometres in length.
It will also improve traffic movement at intersections, including the installation of traffic lights and grade separated junctions.
