Stakeholders call for speedy completion of projects

By Regina Manyara

Tourism stakeholders based in Mombasa are calling for speedy completion of major infrastructural projects so as to open up areas considered hinter lands to business and investments.

They say the expansion of the Airport-Port Reitz road, construction of the Mombasa-Mariakani Highway dual carriageway, Dongo-Kundu Bypass and Mombasa Northern Bypass would transform social economic development of Mombasa County as well as ease movement of tourists and reduce cases of flight delays.

During this period food and fruit vendors plying the Mombasa Nairobi route have been on the receiving end over long hour delays that have at times resulted to losses.

Tourists have not been spared either, with several having missed their flights on numerous occasions.

Tourism stakeholders remain upbeat that apart from decongesting Mombasa city the major road works will also facilitate the growth of the tourism sector in the region.

The 18 km long Dongo-Kundu Bypass Highway also known as Mombasa Southern Bypass will connect Mombasa Mainland West with Mombasa mainland South and forms part of a three-phase plan to decongest Mombasa by 2018.
