In a display of dedication to the development and urbanization of sub-counties, Governor Susan Kihika’s administration has embarked on a transformative journey to reshape the landscape of Naivasha. With a steadfast commitment to realizing the county’s development goals, the Governor’s vision is becoming a reality, as infrastructural projects are cropping up across the region.
One of the latest initiatives spearheaded by Governor Kihika’s administration is the construction of an advanced drainage system along Mama Ngina Street in Naivasha municipality. Today, Naivasha Municipal Manager, Mr. Daniel Ndiritu, and Sub- County Engineer, Isaac Kirui, took a firsthand look at the ongoing works, signaling a significant step forward in this monumental project.
The project, with a budget of Sh 14 million, not only includes the construction of a drainage system but also incorporates essential amenities such as paved parking slots, a non-motorized transport system, and elements that will add value to the surrounding.
What sets this project apart is its connectivity to the existing Biashara road drain that was previously constructed under the municipal board’s guidance. This integration is a testament to the administration’s commitment to creating a comprehensive urban infrastructure network that enhances the quality of life for the residents of Naivasha.
Mr. Ndiritu, after inspecting the project, expressed his satisfaction with the progress made so far. He noted that the work is being executed in strict accordance with the agreed-upon plans and timelines. The enthusiasm and dedication of the construction team are apparent, leaving no room for doubt that this initiative will be a resounding success.
The impact of this development project extends far beyond its immediate functionalities. By establishing an efficient drainage system, Naivasha is better prepared to tackle flooding and water management issues, particularly during the rainy seasons. The inclusion of paved parking slots and a non-motorized transport system will not only make commuting more convenient but also promote eco-friendly modes of transportation, reducing the carbon footprint in the region.
Furthermore, the efforts will Mama Ngina Street a more inviting space for residents and visitors alike. This, in turn, is expected to boost local businesses and tourism, ultimately contributing to the economic growth of the area.
Governor Susan Kihika’s administration is dedicated to elevating the living standards and economic prospects of the people of Naivasha. As the construction of the drainage system along Mama Ngina Street nears completion, it serves as a testament to the transformative power of visionary leadership, and a promise of a brighter future for Naivasha and its residents. The road to urbanization is long, but with determination and progress like this, it’s a journey worth taking
