The present intervention is related to the Rumuruti - Maralal Road Study. This route serves a large administrative and social region, and is used to transport agricultural products and freight to and from the region. The completion of this study should provide an economic assessment of the costs and benefits resulting from the asphalting of the Rumuruti - Maralal road and any related work on feeder roads that can be identified as being closely associated with the project. An improved road reduces vehicle operating costs, will result in lower transport costs and an improvement in the level of transport services. First, carriers should benefit from this situation and given the competitive nature of the trucking industry, most of these benefits are quickly shared among transportation service users. The project consists of: (stage 1) Feasibility Study and (stage 2) Detailed engineering design study and preparation of tender documents.
The overall objective is to determine investment priorities in the transport sector and to the extent in the whole country. The Specific objective of the project is to determine the technical, social and economic feasibility of improving the existing gravel/earth road of about 150 km length to a bitumen standard in order to lower transport costs which would improve road transport service levels in the Laikapia and Samburu districts of the Rift Valley Province and detailed engineering design including preparation of tender documents.
The beneficiaries of the project are the local authorities of the Rumuruti - Maralal regions and ultimately the populations of the project area.
