Nakuru needs an airport.
it's a very big tourism city. am very sure all those tourists 80% of them would prefer to fly than taking a bus ride. nakuru is big enough and it's social and economic aspects justfies an airport the size of kisumu. not to serve diverted flights, but to serve nakuru's economy. there are flower farms in naivasha also. an airport will do them very good.

Agreed.
No need for another airport. If whe have $ to spend, MSA airport should be revamped and then a good chunk of money should be set a side to pay for air tight aiport security across the country.
There are plans to dual NBI - Nakuru rd which will make the drive to JKIA a breeze.

Only one way to be sure. Use science to get objective justification, do a rigorous market survey and feasibility study. I'd like to read its report.

You actually didn't get my point. Naivasha is the town that is 70km from Nairobi. They want the airport to be in Naivasha instead of Nakuru (which indeed needs an airport much more than Naivasha does) which makes no sense to me at least. Nakuru is about 160km away.

Oh ok my bad, but there has to be a reason for having an airport in Naivasha. I think we as Kenyans keep second guessing everything the government tries to do.

Biogas plant for Naivasha

nakuru Naivasha town will benefit from a Sh500 million biogas power plant. The Gorge Farm Energy Park is expected to produce 2.8 megawatts in the next two months.

The project will be using vegetable crop residues in power production. Project operations manager Mike Nolan said it is owned by Kenyan investors, who have provided $6 million for it. Nolan said apart from the power, the plant will produce fertiliser and carbon dioxide, which will be sold to farmers.

Construction of stadium in Naivasha put on hold over land issues By Vincent Mabatuk Updated Wednesday, May 7th 2014 at 00:00 GMT +3 Share this story: By Vincent Mabatuk Naivasha, Kenya: The much-awaited construction of an ultramodern stadium in Naivasha by the county government of Nakuru has been suspended. The High Court in Nakuru has temporarily stopped the county government from proceeding with commissioning of the project until a case opposing it is heard and determined. This transpired yesterday after five petitioners moved to court alleging they have been occupying the land on which the facility is supposed to be put up since 1998 and were never consulted about plans to construct the stadium. The 50,000-seater Nakuru International Sports and Convention Centre will have underground parking that can accommodate between 8,000 and 10,000 vehicles. The petitioners, led by Pharis Ndung’u, have filed the case on behalf of 24 others, claim to have been occupying the land as squatters. The land that previously belonged to Delamere estate is said to have been exchanged with a parcel belonging to the government for construction of a sports complex. Justice Rosyne Wendoh directed both parties to appear before her on June 6 for further directions.

It makes more economic sense to upgrade the already existing Afraha Stadium since the land is already available and it's a much cheaper alternative.

50,000 is a bit much at the moment. Maybe 30,000 with provisions for expansion in future. It is rare to see Nyayo Stadium and Kasarani full and they are in Nairobi so what about a smaller town.

There is also an abundance of holiday resorts.

The development comprises 13 spacious one bedroom units with kitchen bathroom and shower. There are 7 units consisting of two en suite bedrooms, a large kitchen, dining and lounge. According to the developer, these units are ideal for a small family.



Then there are 15 units described as the ultimate in a holiday home. All three bedrooms en suite with the master bedroom coming with a Jacuzzi.

Amenities offered at Osotua include a health club with swimming pools. A nature trail is available for walking, jogging or cycling. A marina with a cruise boat for relaxing cruises in the lake and recreational fishing for residents and visitors to Osotua will also be available. Bespoke themed programs to give a different experience will be made possible by Osotua management. These will include adventure trips to Hells Gate National Park, hiking, camping and wild game tours. Guests can also choose to be pampered at the top of the range outdoor or indoor spas schedules and for those who prefer, sports programs will be arranged.

If Nakumatt is the anchor for the above project, what about Buffalo mall?
