Engi­neers must en­sure roads meet global stan­dards

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Road engi­neers are to blame for the shoddy job on our roads. It is com­mon to find many roads with ex­traor­di­naryly big bumps, which are a pre­serve for of­froad ve­hi­cles. Many of these roads lack es­sen­tial sign­boards and mark­ings, thus mak­ing it very dif­fi­cult for the driv­ers to fol­low road rules. Our roads must adopt in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­cepted guide­lines to pre­vent ac­ci­dents. This does not de­mand much be­sides fol­low­ing the right pro­ce­dures in road con­struc­tion. Engi­neers should stop be­ing greedy and spend well on their work.
