Upon completion, the road will ease transport to and from the Lamu deep seaport that has the capacity to dock some of the world’s largest cargo ships and oil tankers. It will also provide employment opportunities to local youths and Kenyans drawn from other parts of the country who are providing both skilled and semi-skilled labour.
