Vestrak Africa express our delight at the launch of Gatiiguru Tarmac as launched by CS James Macharia. We bring you the following excerpt;

The government on Friday launched tarmacking of a 65-kilometre road that cuts across lower parts of Gatanga and Maragua areas of Murang’a County.

The road which starts in Gateiguru area in Ithanga to Mbombo in Maragua will be tarmacked within a period of one year at a tune of Sh. 2.6 billion.

Speaking when launching the project, Roads and Transport Cabinet Secretary (CS) Mr. James Macharia said the lower parts of the county had been neglected for a long time, adding the tarmacking of the road will enhance and promote economic activities in the area.

Macharia said former governments had not prioritized roads improvement in parts of Ithanga, Makuyu, Mithini and Kakuzi.

This will be the first tarmac road in this region and the impact of it will bring various social and economic advancements to the local residents, added Macharia.

He noted that Murang’a County has benefitted from this current administration, observing that several roads are being tarmacked at a cost of about Sh. 24 billion.

He added that the national government has also set aside Sh. 3.5 billion to supply water for irrigation in parts of Ithanga and Mithini.

We are committed to make this area productive by providing enough water to support irrigation farming, and with the tarmacked road, farmers will easily access to markets
