Kenya-Tanzania $300 million road link being rebuilt
The African Development Bank (AfDB) is intending to put $300 million into the project but is also seeking co-funding, WorldHighways reports.
A further $485 million will be needed to pay for the project, which should then take three years to construct. The route will run along the coastline, connecting Malindi in Kenya with Bagamoyo in Tanzania.
Around 215km of the route runs through Kenya, with the remaining 230km in Tanzania.
On the Kenyan side the route also runs through its main port of Mombasa and Lunga Lunga, while on the Tanzanian side the road will also connect through Pangani and Saadani. ■
