Nairobi - The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) is seeking the Treasury’s approval to advertise tenders for a company to put up toll stations and manage the maintenance of newly-launched Thika Superhighway.
In a statement to Capital News, KeNHA's Director General Meshack Kidenda, said that the contract will probably be awarded later in 2013 after Parliament approves the mechanisms for contracting and charging of motorists who use the road.
He insists that despite the ongoing resistance from motorists, the authority was pushing ahead with plans to raise over KES1 billion needed every year for the maintenance of the road.
