Construction of a Sh5.5-billion cable car at the Likoni crossing linking Mombasa Island and the mainland will start in December.

The express link will ease traffic jam, boost tourism and address the regular ferry breakdowns on the Likoni Channel.

Kenya Ferry Service Managing Director Bakari Gowa said the construction will start at the end of the year.

“About the cable cars it is indeed a reality. We expect final approval for the same to be done next week by the relevant unit and thereafter we shall proceed to ground breaking.
