Motorists to pay to use Southern bypass
07 August 2013, 16:02
Nairobi - All motorists planning to drive through Nairobi’s Southern bypass will be charged a toll fee as the government moves to establish Kenya’s first ever private management of the country’s roads.
The tolling services and maintenance of the 30-kilometre dual carriageway shall be done by a private contractor under a public private partnership (PPP) arrangement, Business Daily reports.
The government on Monday invited bids for advisory services to determine the most viable PPP model for the project, set a legal framework and help pick a suitable contractor to manage the road under a 25-year concession.
