The 1.1 billion shillings Mokowe road in Lamu is set to be complete by November 2019.
The 15 kilometer road funded by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) is among many infrastructure projects aimed at opening up the area for commence and industry.
With 10 percent of the Kshs 1.1 billion already complete, Mokowe area which is the county’s new administrative headquarters has had a facelift from a sleepy town Centre to a bubbling county metropolis.
KURA official Abdulrashid Mohammed who undertook an inspection tour to assess the progress of the construction warned those trying to encroach on the road reserve that they will be evicted.
Lamu Governor Fahim Twaha, who also spoke as he received the KURA delegation, lauded the Mokowe project as a milestone for the county as the urban road network will help in modernizing the new administrative capital.
Lamu is witnessing a revolution in infrastructure development in light of the LAPSSET project.
Leaders and residents of the county have hailed the development in the town saying this is set to transform the economic fortunes of the area.
