The Government of Kenya has embarked on a project to build 10,000km roads across the country, in an effort to bring growth and development in the country. The roads will be built in the next five years through annuity concessions. The model will ensure that high volume roads are largely prioritized to enhance effectiveness.


The project will be carried out in three phases. The first phase under the annuity framework will commence on July at a cost of US$457m and will cover areas that have the most demand.....

Why are they using these framework finance - design - build - maintain. The Euro bond was suppose to raise money for these kind of projects.

$2b isn't even enough to build world class roads and interchanges(spaghetti) around nairobi. kenya needs at least $25b solely for roads to bring it to the same level as morocco, algeria, and s.a. in road infrastructure.

What leading countries? I've been in a lot of African countries, and infrastructurewise, Kenya is definitely in the top league of Sub-saharan Africa.

SA are of course ahead of all other SSA countries, but except them, I'd say maybe Zambia is close to Kenya's level.

am not trying to compare kenya with petiful countries like uganda, tanzania, zim, congo etc. am looking up to countries like morocco, sa, algeria etc.
we kenyans should stop comparing ourselves to countries that are already behind us. we shold aim to punch above our weight.

Savannah Cement Targets Roads

Savannah Cement is targeting the road construction sector, as it brings to the market a specially developed product.

The company has begun manufacturing Hydraulic Road Binder (HRB) cement, a product blend that is used to stabilise road surfaces. Savannah on Wednesday said in a statement that it had done so at the behest of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure.

The product will be used in place of other cement and lime varieties. Combined with soil and water, it will produce a material that will then be used as the foundation for paved roads.

The product has received Kenya Bureau of Standards certification and is being tested by the Transport ministry.

“The new Savannah Cement HRB product, which will retail at a lower rate than conventional cement, is expected to contribute up to 30 per cent approximate cost savings on the Sh25 billion national road construction budget,” managing director Ronald Ndegwa said.

I listened to the local contractors and all they seemed interested in is getting big money.The good sign there are many Chinese contracors.This figure of 2000km for 2014/2015 year seems unachievable because the projects will start in Dec 2014.I also saw on the Citizen website that there was an intention before to build 10,000km but the govt only manages to build 400km a year.Good luck
