Finally, TARMAC for Athi River Campus Access Road
The Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KERRA) has finally erected a road construction signboard at the Daystar/Mombasa Road junction in preparation for commencement of construction of the road stretch from Mombasa highway to Daystar Athi River/ campus. The work will progress in sections of 800 meters at a time until the entire stretch is completed up to the Daystar gate. The project is estimated to be complete in a year.
The community is also notified that contract for the alternative access road from Devki Steel Mill has also been awarded to another contractor and that both roads will be undertaken simultaneously.
We praise the Lord for this progress even we bear with the short term discomfort. God has indeed heard our cry and answered our prayers for a tarmacked road. Our persistent lobbying of Government authorities has finally borne fruit.
At the same road, construction of the greater southern bypass interchange is set to begin anytime now at the Daystar/Mombasa road junction as work progresses on the dual carriage highway.
As a result, we have taken down the Athi River campus road signboard at the Mombasa road junction to pave way for the highway construction. We will have a provisional signage at a new location to be assigned by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA). We await completion of the new road design before a permanent signboard can be designed and erected.
