The A8
Proposed Nairobi - Mombasa Expressway


Bechtel | 5th August 2017

Quote:
Bechtel, a global leader in engineering, procurement, and construction, has been selected by the Kenya National Highways Authority to build the first high-speed expressway in the country.

The new 473 km (294 mi) route will vastly improve the connectivity, efficiency and safety of road transport between Nairobi and the country’s main sea port, Mombasa, and will reduce the journey time from over 10 hours to under four hours. The expressway will serve as a central part of Kenya’s national transport system, helping to promote trade and development in Kenya and further into landlocked Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. This project will complement the new Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) to transform the 280-mile (450-kilometer) Nairobi-Mombasa corridor into a vibrant and continuous economic zone.

“Bechtel has been working with the Government of Kenya for over two years to develop this strategic infrastructure priority project, which will support unlocking significant growth in Kenya and the region,” said Craig Albert, president of Bechtel’s global infrastructure business. “We will bring global megaproject capability and local commitment to deliver the Nairobi-Mombasa expressway to our high standards of quality, safety and sustainability. We’ll create infrastructure and skills legacies by partnering with local companies, suppliers, and directly employing and training Kenyans.”...
  • The current road the A109 wont be completely dismantled. It will pretty much remain intact in many sections.
  • The project will be 473 kms in length and will be divided in 10 sections (11 sections if u count 2A and 2B as separate).
