Justificatif

Poor infrastructure was identified as one of the major constraints of the development endeavors of the Governments. This condition required the Governments to scale up the quantity and quality of infrastructures, especially the condition of the roads, which carries more than 90% of motorized freight and passenger traffic Government of Kenya (GOK) launched the long-term development strategy, Vision 2030, and the first five-year Medium Term Plan (MTP) for the period 2008-2012. The development of physical infrastructure in the MTP is seen as the basis for socio-economic transformation. Government of Ethiopia (GOE) started the implementation of the GTP (2010/11 -14/15) with main objective of sustaining rapid and broad-based growth path witnessed during the past several years and eventually ends poverty. One of the pillars the GTP strategy hinges on is enhancing expansion and quality of infrastructure development.

The development of the Mombasa - Nairobi - Addis Ababa corridor will expand market sizes beyond national boundaries and foster a conducive and enabling environment for the private sector and for attracting foreign direct investments. In addition to enhancing trade and strengthening regional integration, the project will contribute to poverty reduction in both countries by increasing access to markets and social services for the people living along the corridor. The project will also avail an economically viable alternative outlet to Ethiopia through the sea port of Mombasa

The road is considered as a priority under the East African Community (EAC), the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), as well as the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD). The project is also part of the NEPAD short term action plan.
