Japan revitalizes Kenya’s Mombasa Gateway bridge


Kenya and Japan have signed a a Ksh260 billion deal to support the construction of Africa’s longest bridge-Mombasa Gateway bridge as well as the Dongo Kundu Infrastructure Ecosystem.

Construction of the 1.4 km link bridge (with a 660m span) is expected to take 36 months to complete.

The cable-stayed/powered bridge will carry four traffic lanes and will be 69-Metre high at mid-point, leaving sufficient space for ships to cross underneath it.

Mombasa Gateway Bridge is expected to improve transport and traffic flow to and from Mombasa significantly and will also complement the Dongo Kundu road bypass, which is almost complete and is expected to boost trade and tourism on the South Coast.
