Uhuru launches the new Makupa bridge

President Uhuru Kenyatta has launched the new Kshs 4.5 billion Makupa Bridge in Mombasa and commissioned the construction of Makupa railway bridge and MGR line from Mombasa Central Station to the SGR Terminus in Miritini.

The 450-metre long, 8-lane dual carriageway Makupa Bridge has replaced the 1929 Makupa Causeway that was prone to heavy traffic congestion and had become a threat to the marine ecosystem.

As part of the launch, President Kenyatta witnessed the removal of Makupa Causeway, allowing the free flow of Indian Ocean waters across the new bridge and restoring Mombasa City’s status as a true island.
