President Uhuru Kenyatta has on Wednesday commissioned dualling of the congested Mombasa-Mariakani highway in Mombasa County.

The Sh6.1 billion infrastructure project is expected to resolve perennial traffic jams between Kibarani and Jomvu.

According to the administration, the move caps its total investment in infrastructure in the devolved unit at Sh60 billion.

Dualling of the six-lane highway will start with the construction of the 11.3-kilometre Mombasa-Kwa Jomvu section at a cost of Sh6.1 billion.
