Nairobi outlines plans to decongest city

14 February 2014, 11:34

Nairobi - The Nairobi County government has pledged to embark on a number of initiatives aimed at streamlining the roads and transport sector in the region.

According to officials, the initiatives will look at easing traffic and developing infrastructure through capacity building including partnerships and formation of committees to address the problems facing transport in the city.

“In order to address new and emerging challenges in the roads, public works and transport sector, the County has put, or is putting in place, different initiatives to build internal capacity,” said Governor Evans Kidero.

Among the initiatives in place, according to Dr. Evans Kidero, include the creation of a secretariat to drive the new transformation framework, reengineering and revamping of the engineering department with new capabilities to address behavior and attitude change in the road and transport sector.

The county has begun the recruitment and development of the County Traffic Marshals who will manage traffic.

The governor pledged that more would be recruited.

Mobilization of stimulus funds to rehabilitate and repair of roads in all the wards in Nairobi City County is an initiative that will work in tandem with the National government’s efforts to improve infrastructure and ease congestion.

Another initiative that the county has pledged is to engage bilateral and multilateral development partners with a view to mobilizing resources for transport.

The county would also explore the existing studies and construction of the nine corridors in the region.
