The roads minister said in parliament that Outering road will be dualled with monies from African Development Bank, design is in progress and expected to be complete by March next year.
That makes me wary of this project because the fact that Afdb are cited as financers of outering road yet we had been informed before that Jica is to fund the expansion of both Ngong road and Outering road makes me wonder whether they have pulled out of the projects altogether.
Here is the timelines for the projects under jicahttp://www.kura.go.ke/wp-content/upl...d-Projects.pdf

i think we need more ppp or bop to build more roads, coz the govt can't be able to fulfill the gap of road infrastructure. i think we need more privateers to build tolls roads to connect this country.

The projects to be funded by the EU are not exactly ahead of schedule either. Unfortunately, as we know, there are some "structural challenges" facing European economies at the moment..

We can't depend on the europeans all the the time. at the afdb has done alot to keep funding other infrastructures around africa.i think kenya we have the capacity to build our roads with our own money. i think the infrastructure bond might help maybe they can be specific about the bond-that is to be funded by toll charges, we used to have tolls but in the hands of the govt-it was a disaster...it became people's money.i think we can as kenya...pull some of the money around...

Trying to attract diaspora to buy gov't bonds, more PPPs, etc. there is plenty the Kenyan government can do other than just flat out borrowing money if they're committed.

All these good ideas about homeland financing of critical things such as infrastructure will only work once you have decision-makers (=politicians in Kenya) who have the capacity to understand and embrace modern innovative ways of running countries, not geriatrics (google and read all about Lee Kuan Yew and how he transformed Singapore into a first-class economy, all on a landmass that is less than 1% of Kenya's). Was watching TV the other day when some former MP from Kisii was enumerating why he should be re-elected: ati because he has increased the no of locations and sub-locations! This is the 21st century!

Can someone find out if and when Ngong Road will be expanded? It needed to be upgraded to a dual carriageway like yesterday. If someone needs to go to Karen or Ngong, they are always prepared for a very long and tiresome journey. Moreover, this will reduce the traffic on Kilimani roads and Kileleshwa roads.

Not anytime soon. Was to be expanded from Nov 2011(check Kura website) but after Japan Earthquake i think the funding stalled somehow. I however tend to think that they are still the financiers of Outering road expansion that is expected to begin later this year.
Last time i heard Kenya was wooing China to fund the project; wonder why we have to look to China all the time.

JICA will at the same time sign to give a grant for the expansion of Ngong Road to six lanes from All Saints Cathedral to Nakumatt Junction at Dagoretti Corner. Money is still being sought for the Dagoretti Corner Karen Bomas section.

i think they have slowed down because the prime ministers office and the president must review all files before having them submitted in the next fiscal years one we go back to being a unitary republic with only a President and a VP we will see the economy rise and all major projects kick off with a bang and end with a bang LOL

[The money will be used to expand Ngong Road -the 4.7km stretch between Adams Arcade to the Ngong Road-Kenyatta Avenue junction.

There will be sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists once the three-year project, whose deadline is February 2015, is completed.

The deal was sealed Saturday when Finance minister Njeru Githae and Japan's envoy to Kenya Toshihisa Takata put pen to paper at a brief ceremony in Nairobi's Serena Hotel.

It now brings to Sh31 billion the amount of money that the Japan Government has given Kenya for the building of roads in two of Kenya's most important cities of Nairobi and Mombasa. And this in just a fortnight.

Roads minister Franklin Bett was also at the venue at which he said that the Ngong Road grant was "exciting".

Mr Bett apologised for the slow removal of the obstacles, but said that the contractors should "concentrate on the areas where the utilities have already been removed".

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority will handle the Ngong Road project.

The rationale for the expansion of the Ngong Road project, according to a brief seen by the Sunday Nation, is that the population of Nairobi, both that of vehicles and people, has increased, yet the infrastructure has remained unchanged.

The congestion has seen the cost of transport shoot through the roof.
