Description

This project entails the construction of 2-lane 2-way highway with grade separated intersections where appropriate, high quality pavement, 1.5-2m wide shoulders to reduce traffic friction and enhance safety of road users.

The project is expected to consist of improvements of earth/gravel surface feeder roads contiguous with the highway as a way of widening access and to ensure that the road systems function as a network due to improved networks connectivity between lower level networks and the main national road system. A number of social infrastructure (markets, dispensaries, and schools) are also expected to be connected with the main road network as the budget will allow.

The road project is expected to afll under environmental categorisation 1 given the length of 149km and a few proposed road re-alignments, which may impact/ affect more than 200 persons over the entire road corridor.

The cost of the project is estimated at UA 150 million. The GoK has allocated from the ADF 13 envelop a financing of UA 30 million (or USD 45 million). The financing gap stands at more than UA 90 million (or USD 135 million).


Objectifs

The project objective is to improve road transport infrastructure between Tanzania and Kenya, particularly between Mwanza and Kisumu, and onwards to Eldoret in the north and further to Nairobi-the regional commercial hub of East Africa.


Justificatif

The EAC Master Plan for Transport (2012) has identified the Isebania-Kisii-Ahero road links as one of the key economic corridors requiring urgent attention, hence the need to expand capacity of this highway link. The proposed rehabilitation of this link is expected to tie in with the Leseru-Nandapal-Juba link that would significantly, cut freight distance between the trading nodes of Mwanza, Kisumu, Nairobi, and Juba thus fostering economic integration within the EAC.

The project has been identified in the Country Strategy Paper (CSP 2013-2017) as priority for development.
