Chesumei MP Paul Biego launches over 300 Kilometers of road renovation projects across his constituency.

On a three-day’s tour criss-crossing Chesumei roads under Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KRRA), Mp Biego kicked off his caravan at Kiptuiya ward where he flagged off the maintenence of Danger-Chemarmar and Kapkangani-Kapkitara roads on Monday.

Noting that infrustractures are vital and development enablers, he said his administration is focused to open up rural roads claiming to be the last-mile communication facilities that support the region’s economy.

Among the roads slotted as the first phase projects include Mosoriot-Leboinet-Mateget, Mosoriot-Kokwet-Chepketei, Chemuswa-Saniak-Sironoi, Kiboswa-Kipkongorwa and Mlango-Sigot roads.

Others are Kapsile-Chemarot-Mogoget, Kapng’etich-Lelemokwo and Kapng’etich-Kipchunu roads.

The contractors are already in the sites as Mp Biego indicated that the projects are slated to end within three months and urged the locals to cooperate with the constructors.

“We have issues concerning the roads that need designers and surveyor ingineers. We have consulted them on expansion of some feeders roads stretching to the remote villages which have not been attended before; so locals should be patriotic enough to pave way the expansion processes along their parcels of land,” he stated.

While speaking during a handing-over ceremony at Kiptuiya ward, he pointed out drainage as a major challenge and urged the members of the public to allow redesignations of the drainage systems along the roads.

He regretted that some of the constructors awarded one of the 15 roads in his constituency are yet to execute and cannot be reached on phone.

“The constructor assigned to gravel Kamobo road has not appeared on the site since the tendering process was concluded. There must be something wrong and I have raised concerns with KRRA to take appropriate action againts the contractor, otherwise we cannot condone delay in implementation of the project,” he affirmed.

However, the first term UDA legislator hinted that he will lead the reviewing of the policies and laws governing the KRRA, claiming that there glaring underestimation of funds allocated to gravel and design the roads and they are inconsistent to the actual value.
