The county government of Nandi is set to improve its road networks after receiving a total of Kshs. 126 M from the World Bank.
The project which includes tarmacking of feeder roads and recarpeting of existing roads accumulating to 2.6 Kilometres within Kapsabet Municipality is expected to be accomplished within a period of one year and three months.
Speaking during the flagship of the project, Kapsabet municipality Boss Engineer Hillary Koech lauded the World Bank for the support saying he will ensure the project is done in a standardized manner thus tasked the contractor on the site to ensure he performs his task diligently and with a lot of seriousness.
He added that the project is expected to be completed within the set timelines thus urged the contractor to put more efforts in ensuring he beats this timeline for proper commissioning.
The roads to be worked on include Jua kali, Kokwet, Jean Marie and Chepcholol respectively within Kapsabet Municipality which will be tarmacked.
Koech cited that as a county government, they are grateful for the project as it will improve infrastructural services and business within the town.
“I want to ask the contractor to achieve quality standard work because any shoddy work will not be tolerated,” he said
On the other hand, Kapsabet ward MCA Hon Fredrick Kipkemboi said as a member of county assembly of Nandi is very grateful for the project which is covering largely part of his ward urging the contractor to give priority to the locals in employment.
