The tendering process of eight bridges that will link four counties has been completed. Bomet county Roads executive Samson Menjo said the construction will begin in the next one month.
Menjo said the bridges interconnecting Nakuru, Kisii, Narok and Kericho are aimed at fostering security, economy and tourism across the region.
Speaking to the Star in Bomet town on Saturday, Menjo said he is committed to ensuring cross border movement is improved so that the transportation of goods and movement of people is eased.
He said the completion of roads being gravelled by Bomet county will also shorten distances between the counties in delivery of produce to the markets.
"We want to achieve our targets this year of ensuring all the roads leading to key agricultural areas are graded and gravelled so that delivery of farm produces is made easier. We are also committed to seeing the roads open up new market ventures for the residents," Menjo said.
He said the Kisii-Bomet bridges have also been gravelled to promote security surveillance in the area while the Narok-Bomet road will ensure accessibility to the Masai Mara Game Reserve.
