CRBC partners with Kiambu County to combat COVID-19 spread

The Contractor tasked with the construction of Western by Pass has partnered with the County Government of Kiambu to combat the spread of COVID-19.

China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) has teamed up with County Health authorities to enforce regulations geared towards flattening the curve in the project corridor.

Project Manager, Eric Yu said among the measures put in place are sensitization, public health measures including washing of hands and wearing face masks.

“CRBC has mounted banners with safety messaging in strategic locations to enhance a sensitization among project staff, local community and road users,” Yu said

CRBC introduced the measures in January and the initiatives have borne fruit.

Yu said the measures are being enforced on a 24 hour basis.

“We have inculcated in our staff the need to observe the permitted health protocols. The compliance levels is now at 100per cent”, Yu said in a statement.

At the same time, CRBC has decried the slow pace of relocating power lines, with only 3 per cent of the electricity amenities having been successfully moved

Kenya Power has attributed the delay to land disputes as a result of compensation delays.

But Yu says the National Land Commission finalized the mapping and gazettement in August and said he hoped the standoff will end within the next three weeks.

“NLC has finalized on most bottlenecks in land matters. We expect it will be smooth sailing going forward” he said.

The road, once completed will feature the construction of a two-lane dual carriageway and will also link the Southern bypass at Gitaru and the Northern bypass in Ruaka.

So far, 30 per cent of the work is completed.
