By Shadrack Nyakoe

The Nairobi County‘s Ward Development Program (WDP) continues its efforts to construct and rehabilitate roads across various wards in Nairobi.

The WDP completed asphaltic concrete works, road marking, and the installation of cat eyes (reflector studs) on 1.8 kilometers of roads in Kileleshwa Ward, including Suguta, Mazeras, Mbooni, Mugoiri and Hamisi Roads.

Drainage works, an essential component of road infrastructure, are currently underway.

Acting Chief Executive Officer of Ward Development Program, Eng. Eston Kimathi, noted that: “Works on the 5 roads in Kileleshwa Ward are substantially complete. We also have ongoing projects across the city, including the construction of Victory Road in Roysambu Ward, Kibarage Road in Kitsuru Ward, and the construction of Block G feeder road in Dandora II Ward, among others.”

The WDP is a capital development program aimed at allocating a specific portion of the County’s annual budget to the wards for development purposes, particularly focusing on poverty alleviation and improving the lives of Nairobi residents across all 85 wards.

“In the current financial year 2023/2024, WDP has procured projects in all 85 wards valued at Kes. 1.9 billion. Under the leadership of Governor Sakaja, previously underdeveloped wards like Uthiru/Rithimitu have received a fair share of development, including the construction of the first county-funded tarmac road to enhance the residents’ dignity.

Additionally, WDP has overseen the construction of non-motorized transport facilities like walkways in informal settlements such as Mathare/Mabatini and the rehabilitation of roads within residential estates like New Ngara Estate.

In alignment with the governor’s manifesto, the implementation of these projects has generated job opportunities for our youth, diverting them from engaging in substance abuse,” Eng. Kimathi emphasized.
