KeNHA to build bridge across Mombasa’s Makupa causeway

Kenya National Highway Authority (KeNHA) will build a bridge across the Makupa causeway to ensure water flows freely through the creek.
The construction scheduled to commence in the next one year will also ensure there is no pollution at the causeway and support the breeding of fish.
Speaking during a sensitization workshop for members of the judiciary, office of the director of prosecution and police at Voyager Beach Hotel in Mombasa County at the weekend, KeNHA director in charge of Highway Planning and Design Samuel Omer said the bridge was currently being designed.
Eng Omer said the 200-metre Makupa causeway bridge will be similar to the one at Mbita in Homa Bay County that has so far allowed the flow of water and aided breeding of fish.
“We have a similar bridge in Mbita where fishermen and the local community have reported increased fish in the area,” Omer said.
KeNHA will also deal with cases of illegal bumps on the highways which are responsible for some road accidents.
“Road bumps should be constructed as a last resort because they can cause road accidents. We are going to remove all illegal bumps on the highways” he said.
