Sa­fari­com scheme gets nod to build road to Sh4bn homes

The 500 me­tre road will link the Athi River homes to the Nairo­bi­mom­basa high­way

Business Daily (Kenya) - - COUNTY BUSINESS - John Mu­tua jmu­tua@ke.na­tion­media.com

The Sa­fari­com pen­sion scheme has re­ceived ap­proval from roads au­thor­i­ties to link its Sh4.4 bil­lion Athi River homes to the Nairobi-mombasa high­way, eas­ing ten­ants’ ac­cess to fa­cil­i­ties such as Nairobi Hos­pi­tal, Naivas and Java.

The Kenyan Na­tional High­ways Au­thor­ity (KENHA) and the Kenya Ur­ban Roads Au­thor­ity (KURA) gave per­mis­sion for the con­struc­tion of a 500 me­ter tar­ma­cked road.

The pro­ject is nearly 90 per cent com­plete with 40 per cent of houses sold, while its mall in the gated com­mu­nity is ex­pected to have a 50 per cent oc­cu­pancy by end of year, says the pen­sion scheme.

The planned road will ease con­nec­tion be­tween Nairobi-mombasa high­way and the prop­erty dubbed Crys­tal Rivers that sits on 25 acres of land. “We have ramped up the works to en­sure that Crys­tal Rivers will be open to the pub­lic by the peak of the De­cem­ber fes­tive sea­son.

“As of now, Naivas is at an ad­vanced stage of fit­ting out their premises while other ten­ants such as Java and Nairobi Hos­pi­tal are in the process of com­menc­ing their works,” Sa­fari­com Pen­sion Scheme sec­re­tary Richard Gitahi said.

Mr Gitahi spoke at a fo­rum to up­date home buy­ers, mall ten­ants and su­per­vi­sory agen­cies on the pro­ject and ob­tain feed­back from reg­u­la­tors on its com­pli­ance sta­tus.
