In a commendable effort to improve the living conditions of residents, a team from the Department of Infrastructure embarked on a mission today. They inspected a significant project focused on enhancing the drainage system in Githima estate, located in Shabab ward, Nakuru West sub-county. This project, with a budget of Ksh 4.2 million, has reached an impressive 90 percent completion rate and promises to bring about a positive transformation in the area.
These components are designed to ensure the efficient flow of water within Githima Centre, mitigating potential flooding and water-related issues. In addition to these essential structures, the remaining works, which include site clearance and murruming, are actively underway. This approach ensures that not only the drainage system is upgraded but also the surrounding environment is well-maintained.
It’s not just Githima estate that has seen a significant infrastructure boost. The Department of Infrastructure has successfully completed two other notable drainage projects in the region. The first involves the Construction of a Stormwater drainage system along Kmtc road in Milimani, while the second focuses on the Construction of Nyamarutu-Kiti drainage in Menengai Ward. These projects have been executed and handed back to the community, marking a significant milestone in enhancing the quality of life for residents in these areas.
During the inspection, key figures from the local administration were present to show their support for these transformative projects. Shabab MCA David Wathiai and Nakuru West Sub-County Administrator Pamela Tum were actively engaged, highlighting the collaborative nature of these initiatives.
The efforts of the Department of Infrastructure in Nakuru West Sub-County demonstrate a commitment to community development and a tangible dedication to infrastructure improvement. These projects not only address immediate issues related to drainage but also pave the way for a more sustainable and resilient future for the residents. It’s a testament to the positive change that can be achieved when government departments, local leaders, and communities work together for the betterment of their neighborhoods.
