The construction of the Kisii Town-Nyanchwa link road to bitumen standard will be completed in two weeks.
Ongwae had launched the road seven months ago and is among the projects being undertaken to expand the town to its new municipality boundary.
After completion, the road would ease congestion within Kisii Town and relieve traffic flow to the fast-growing Nyanchwa estate.
In the past few years, Nyanchwa has had an increased population. The Government has also established a full-fledged police station in the area as well as constructed Kitutu Central.
“We are opening two access roads that will join the main road that is under construction. Part of the project also involves doing a one-kilometre drainage system in the town,” said Ongwae.
Speaking during a tour of the project, Governor Ongwae accompanied by his deputy Joash Maangi said the project will spur growth in the area.
Project manager Haron Oyaro said the Nyanchwa link road was funded by the World Bank through the Kenya Urban Support Programme.
Municipal manager Nahashon Ongeri said they are building another access road from Nyanchwa car wash to Daraja Mbili market.
