Works on the first floating footbridge across the Likoni Ferry channel have started.

The Sh1.7 billion bridge contracted to the China Road and Bridge Corporation is being erected at Liwatoni on the island side and is a composite structure designed for pedestrians only.

It starts at the former Outrigger Hotel next to the Kenya Coast Guard headquarters in Mvita sub-County and crosses the sea to Peleleza in Likoni sub-County.

The bridge deck will have a 529-metre floating section and a 54-metre approaches on either side.

Coast Regional Coordinator John Elungata said perennial human congestion at the busy Likoni crossing channel will end soon when construction of the footbridge that will link Mombasa Island to the mainland south is completed in November.

The project is being undertaken by the State Department of Infrastructure through its implementing agency the Kenya National Highways Authority.

The bridge will have a discrete continuous structural system with 35 double body supported boats, and two end boats with twin springboards for the floating deck.

More than 300,000 people and 6,000 vehicles cross the busy channel daily using MV Jambo, MV Kwale, MV Likoni, MV Kilindini, MV Nyayo and the newly acquired MV Safari.

Ukisoma comment kwenye hiyo video utaona wakenya wamesha kata tamaa na kukubariana na hali ya mambo kuwa serikali yao imejichokea bora ijenge hata daraja fake
Asante Geza kwa kunifahamisha kuhusu mradi huu. Wewe mtanzania unafahamu mengi kuhusu nchi yangu kunishinda. Huu mradi utapunguza msongamano wa watu kwa kiasi kikubwa. Hatujali kama ni suspension bridge au floating bridge, bora inapunguza msongamano wa watu

If you knew anything about bridges, you would understand that this is a very advanced modern bridge.

Nani anakopa kwa kila kitu? Hivi wewe nyumbu hujui kuwa Kenya inakusanya ushuru wa $16 billion kila mwaka? Nyie mnakusanya nusu ya hio.
Hiyo Pesa mnayokusanya ni mali binafsi ya familia ya Kenyatta na jubilii na mabepari siyo ya wananchi
