The Government will save in excess of 100 million shillings spent in hosting seven agencies under the State Department of Infrastructure in various private buildings annually upon completion of a 2.9 billion shillings Barabara Plaza which is under construction.
The Kenya National Highways Authority alone will cut its 45 million shillings rental expenditure.
Construction of Barabara Plaza commenced in March this year and will be completed mid next year.
The World Bank funded building will be the new headquarters for the Kenya National Highways Authority, Kenya Roads Board, Kenya Rural Roads Authority, Kenya Urban Roads Authority, Engineers Board of Kenya, National Transport and Safety Authority and the National Construction Authority.
The seven agencies are currently tenants in private buildings based in Upper Hill spending millions of shillings annually in rent.
KENHA Director General Peter Mundinia further revealed that completion of the Kainuk Bridge is within timelines despite security threats in the area.
KENHA is currently constructing a 292km Loichangamatak-Nadapal road at a tune of Ksh 31.2 billion jointly funded by the World Bank and the exchequer.
