Kenya’s President’s Delivery Unit team announce progress of US$4.3m (Ksh.445.7m) Kericho bypass project.
Kericho is the biggest town in Kericho County as it is located in the highlands west of the Kenyan Rift Valley. The place has a warm and temperate climate making it an ideal location for agriculture and in particular, the large scale cultivation of tea. So the construction of a bypass will not only bring out the beauty but also encourage faster vehicular traffic.
The construction which is ongoing will reduce commuting time for travellers as well as inking the Kericho-Litein road & the Kericho-Kisumu road. The project is worth US$4.3m (Ksh.445.7m) is part of the President Uhuru Kenyatta plans to help revitalise the environment.
The on-going construction of the Kericho bypass. The 5-km bypass will link the Kericho-Litein road & the Kericho-Kisumu road. By decongesting Kericho town, the Ksh.445.7m project will encourage faster vehicular traffic, therefore reduce commuting time for travellers #GoKDelivers pic.twitter.com/LIXkiWX07R
