10 November 2012
African Development Bank - The Presidents of Kenya, Mwai Kibaki, and the African Development Bank, Donald Kaberuka, have launched today “the most ambitious infrastructure project in Kenya’s history”: the Nairobi–Thika superhighway.
This eight-lane ultra-modern superhighway stretching from the city of Nairobi all the way to the outskirts of Thika town some 50 kilometres away will deeply change the lives of millions of people.
“The Nairobi–Thika superhighway is source of a national pride,” said Kenyan President, Mwai Kibaki.
“It is the first modern highway infrastructure in Kenya’s history, contributing to achieve the country’s goal of reaching middle-income status by 2030.”
