Enhancing Connectivity and Accessibility -Eburru Mbaruk

The Department of Infrastructure has completed and handed over two vital road projects aimed at improving connectivity and accessibility for local residents.

The first project involves the Karai-ini – Maji moto – Kwa Nugu road, connecting Gilgil Murindat and Eburru Mbaruk Wards. With an investment of 18.3 million, funded through the Roads Maintenance Levy Fund, this 11.5-kilometer grading project is set to serve as a crucial link for the communities in the region.

Engineer Michael Kamau, the Chief Officer for Infrastructure, expressed the importance of this project as he officially handed it over to the contractor. He emphasized that the road would not only enhance transportation but also play an essential role in connecting the three wards, benefiting residents of Majimoto and Gitare. Moreover, it is expected to facilitate the smoother transportation of agricultural produce, supporting the local economy.

Simultaneously, the routine maintenance and spot improvement of the NYS – Gatamaiyu – Nyakinywa road, situated in Malewa West Ward, have also been completed and handed over. This comprehensive project includes tasks such as site clearance, topsoil stripping, 4.8 kilometers of grading, 3.7 kilometers of graveling, and culvert and drainage works.

The impact of these infrastructure enhancements extends beyond the physical aspects of roads. The upgraded connectivity will undoubtedly contribute to the overall development and well-being of the communities involved.

Present at the handover ceremony included MCAs Rose Njoroge (Gilgil), Francis Mungai (Malewa West), Peter Njoroge (Murindat), Acting Director of Roads Francis Kuria, Resident Engineer Symon Kariuki, Sub County Administrator Veronica Gachambi, and ward administrators.

With these completed projects, Nakuru County takes a significant step towards fostering economic growth, ensuring efficient transportation, and improving the quality of life for its residents. The commitment to infrastructure development underscores the county’s dedication to creating sustainable and accessible urban and rural areas for all.
