The Timboroa – Eldoret Road Rehabilitation Project is part of the Northern Transport Corridor international road, one of the Government?s priority corridors. The project involves the rehabilitation of 73 km of road section. This road was reconstructed in 1992 with bituminous surfacing and currently operates beyond capacity, carrying a weighted average of about 4,200 vehicles per day. The road has since deteriorated and the poor condition of the road represents increased transportation cost and transit time. The total project cost is UA 38.92 million and ADF loan will cover 89.9% (UA 35 million) and the Government of Kenya 10.1 % (UA 3.92 million). The overall project implementation time frame is four years (2011 – 2015). The completion of the project will increase intra-regional trade between Kenya and the neighbouring countries of Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, DRC and Sudan.
The project objective is to improve transport communications between Kenya and Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, DRC and Southern Sudan for the benefit of the region and population of the project area.
The people living in the project area, the local traders, business community and service providers and road users are among the direct beneficiaries of the project. The direct target population is considered to be the population within Uasin Gishu District (within which the entire road project is located), currently estimated at 894,179 people (2009 census).
