Highway construction connecting Ethiopia and Kenya nearly completed

This highway is part of the construction that will connect southern Ethiopia to the Kenyan port of Mombasa.

The construction of the Merille-Marsabit-Moyale road which is set to connect Kenya to Ethiopia is almost complete.

The Marsabit-Moyale road is to be completed by early May, according to a Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) official.

The Isiolo-Merille-Marsabit-Moyale road is part of the Lamu-Port-South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (Lapsset) corridor funded by the government and the European Union at a cost of Sh13.7 billion or $10.8 million dollars.

A spot check by the Nation revealed that construction workers were working on the final touches of the highway that would connect Kenya to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

According to an engineer involved in the construction, the road is currently being covered with a layer of tarmac chips to make it more durable.
