Agreement to Build Two Link Roads

Posted on : Tuesday, 1st November 2016

 Tanzania and Kenya have agreed on a time line to start the construction of two link roads meant to improve the movement of goods and people between the two countries.

The deal is the major decoration on the meeting between President John Magufuli and his host, President Uhuru Kenyatta, in Nairobi, whose joint address to journalists was made in Kiswahili.

The agreement means that the two countries will now proceed to discuss the final details that will see the Africa Development Bank (AfDB) finance the construction of the Bagamoyo-Malindi highway, and the road through Isebania border in Migori County to Tanzania.

“We have a plan to ensure that we speed up the construction of the road from Bagamoyo to Malindi and the other one through Isebania to open up the western region to enable our people to travel in a way that is safe and affordable,” President Kenyatta told a joint news conference at State House on Monday.
The Bagamoyo-Malindi highway has been on the cards since 2014, when negotiations between the two countries with the AfDB began.
