Achievements

Opening of new roads using labour intensive methods

This has enabled the county to achieve more than 250 km of new roads and this is expected to increase significantly as the exercise is still rolling. The exercise has also created employment to more than 2000 people for about a month. This has increased the economy of the local people as money is circulating in the villages.  The impact created by this project is enormous as in Ribkwo ward in Tiaty Sub – County, we were able to open 75km of new road through community labour.

Construction of roads using mechanized methods

It is expected that more than 200 Kilometers of gravel roads will be created in the county within this year alone. This is will improve significantly the economy of the residents of the county as more motorable routes will be created in the grass roots. More than 35 construction companies will be engaged in this work and in so doing, the economy of the people will be improved. This work is expected to create more than 500 job opportunities directly and indirectly.

Development of foot bridges

The county is in the process of constructing six (6No.) foot bridges. This will reduce travel distance and time for the people to access important public facilities e.g. markets, hospitals, schools and transportation of food. The reduction of time of travel reduces waste and reduces the cost of living by reducing the cost of food. For example, the Waseges foot bridge reduces a distance of more than 200km to about 15km. form Mochongoi to Waseges.

Purchase of mechanical equipment

The county has purchased one bull dozer, two tipping trucks, one drum steel roller, and is to purchase a mechanical excavator and a motor grader. The county intends to purchase equipment worth 109million.  These equipment will go a long way in reducing the cost of constructing roads in the county. The machinery will assist in times of emergencies as the county will not be required to incur much cost and time in procuring for the services of private companies.

Energy development

The ministry is working with the private sector in the development of green enery. In Marigat, the county is working with Cummins Company in the use of prosopis to develop electricity using steam and pressure. These will reduse the destruction of the environment by the invasive plant species which has other problems to the community. The plant creates bushes along the roads which is hazardous.

Street Lighting

We are in the process of installing street lights in two (2No.) towns and Five (5No.) centres within the county. This will improve the security in the towns and increase business hours for our traders.

Public Works

This financial year the department has been involved in managing the project cycle for various county departments that are in the process of carrying out projects. Once complete the projects will fulfill various needs in the community that will include provision of much needed infrastructure and services as well as creation of employment opportunities in the process of construction. The projects will also lead to an uptake in purchase of building construction materials thus helping grow the local economy.
