Kenya: Sh3.1 Billion Road Linking Mombasa Port and Moi Airport Launched to Boost Trade

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday launched the construction of a road to link Mombasa port and Moi International Airport, a project expected to spur trade in the East African region by decongesting the coastal city and linking to the newly constructed container terminal. The Sh3.1 billion road project, jointly funded by Kenya (Sh1.1 billion) and the British government through the Department for International Development (Sh2 billion), will see Port Reitz road turned into a dual carriageway from the Port of Mombasa to Moi airport. Speaking during the launch, President Kenyatta said when completed the road will not only increase investment and trade opportunities in the East and Central Africa region but it will also boost growth of the tourism industry. "When the number of visitors to this city grows, more job opportunities will be created and the youth will benefit," President Kenyatta said. Another Sh2.5 billion has been set aside to compensate people who have been moved to create room for expansion of the road.
