Motorists plying Charina link road have every reason to smile after Embakasi West MP George Theuri promised to smooth out the entire 300 meters stretch that is currently ravaged by potholes.
The transport infrastructure road links Moi Drive to Kangundo Road and is used by vehicles plying several routes including Umoja, Kayole and Donholm. It was added to ease off congestion resulting from the rapid economic growth in the vicinity.
Theuri was on Saturday apologetic about the bad state of the road which has been at the center of attention recently, with users taking to their social media platforms to raise concerns about it.
“Allow me also to take this opportunity to apologise for the bad state of Charina Link Rd, linking Kagundo Rd and Moi Drive in Umoja 1, being one of the main roads and in a very pathetic state,” said Theuri.
He assured motorists that the plan of action was already well in place and the blueprint was only awaiting funding.
“I want to notify the general public that plans are underway to rehabilitate the entire 300m stretch. Once procurement process is completed rehabilitation works will commence.”
While taking responsibility over the situation, the lawmaker requested for more patience from motorists as his office worked on the legalities in procurement procedures.
“I assure the general public that the road will be rehabilitated. Let me apologise in person as I take responsibility while requesting for patience as we work towards completing the required procedures and processes.”
Theuri said he’d continue working hand in hand with local local leaders in delivering services to the electorate.
“Together with all my MCAs we look forward in serving and improving our infrastructure to make Embakasi west constituency the best. God bless you all.”
Meanwhile, social media was abuzz with excitement as the MP took to his facebook handle to brief the public about his plans for the road. Excited motorists commended the move, terming it as a step the right direction.
Theuri has this year embarked on an extensive development agenda for his constituency, having already flagged off the construction of two estate roads in Umoja II and Kariobangi South only a fortnight ago.
While trucks were transporting construction material to location at Kariobangi South 56 on Saturday, the stretch between Umoja II stage and St. Veronica Catholic Church had reached its final phases.
