Tarmacking Of Two New Roads in Eldoret Complete [PHOTOS]

Eldoret town has been in the race to be the country’s fifth city.

Efforts to have the town, already ranked as the fastest growing and top 5 most populated urban area in Kenya, be a city have been ongoing for the last year.

One of the areas that will help push the town to be elevated to a city status is infrastructure – especially roads, within and around the town.

This is an area the County Government of Uasin Gishu has fairly done well, with the support of development partners – among them the World Bank.

Most of the estates in Eldoret town now have tarmacked roads, and there are a number of several new roads within the Centra Business District (CBD).

And as the race to get the city status intensifies, Eldoret town has received a new major face-lift through launching several roads for tarmacking with the latest completed one being Arap Kitongo road.

The road is very significant as it provides access to delivery and pickup of consignments at the doorsteps of products whose go-down stores are located along the road.

Arap Kitongo road also has one significant mall – Highlands Mall, one of the only three malls in Eldoret, alongside the luxurious Rupa’s Mall and the Zion Mall.

Racecourse Road

As more roads are being tarmacked within the CBD, areas outside the town have also not been left behind.

The construction and tarmacking of Racecourse road, a vital linkage to the residents to access Government various facilities and services including; the Kamalel Health facility, Racecourse Primary, Racecourse secondary and Pastoral Center has come to its completion.
