Transport Ministry decries inadequate funds

19 December 2013, 20:00

Nairobi - The Principal Secretary for Transport and Infrastructure, John Mosonik, bemoaned inadequate budgetary allocations and limited external funding saying these were hindering the maintenance of  facilities.

“The Ministry has prudently utilized the available resources to ensure continued development and maintenance of roads infrastructure in the country,” he said at the end-of-year press briefing in Nairobi.

Managing Directors of road agencies namely Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA), the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) and the Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KURA), attended the event.

Mosonik added that other challenges facing the ministry include the lack of adequate engineers and the high cost if land compensation.

“The Kenya National Highways Authority for instance has only 100 engineers which gives it a deficit of approximately 200 engineers,” said Mosonik.

He however said the Engineers Registration Board was working with the University of Nairobi Enterprise Services to resolve the matter through speeding up the registration of more engineers so as to alleviate the problem permanently.

Many road projects initiated by the Mwai Kibaki remain incomplete.

Mosonik attributed the delay to devolution arguing that the ministry lost six months after the new administration came into place earlier this year.

He said part of the KES 1 billion which were given to counties belonged to the road agencies, furthering the delay.

He meanwhile urged the general public to look out for vandals whom he said were depriving roads of critical warning signs and safety facilities.

This, he said, was significantly contributing to road accidents.
