The completion of the construction of the Gatundu-Juja-Juja Farm Road and possible commencement of the construction of Ruiru-Juja-Thika Bypass will offer a lifeline to the locality as well act as a major boost to local investments especially the real estate industry.
The Juja Farm Road, whose construction by a Chinese construction firm is already underway, stems from Gatundu, through Juja town and proceeds to Juja Farm. The road is jointly funded by the National Government and the Kiambu County Government where the former is halfway done with their obligation, that is, six kilometres as the road is only three kilometres shy of Juja Town. The Kiambu County Government will carry on with the remainder.
Again, plans for the construction of the bypass linking up Ruiru, Juja and Thika sub-counties could be on the horizon since its planning and environmental impact assessment was last week done by the relevant stakeholders.
On Tuesday, 21st July 2020, the Kenya Rural Roads Authority aka KERRA in conjunction with the local leaders namely Ruiru MP, Hon. Simon King’ara, Thika Town MP Patrick Wainaina aka Wa-njungle, officials from Juja MP’s Office and Kalimoni MCA Hon. Godfrey Mucheke assessed the road where they called on the public to support this initiative as it is certainly bound to transform the lives of the local populace by interconnecting local areas and improving accessibility to the expansive area or the formerly wider Juja constituency in particular areas that have previously lagged behind in development matters.
On their part, the public applauded their leaders and their two levels of governments for their commendable efforts while also concurring that they were bound to reap greatly once the facilities have been put up. Some especially the ones who have invested in immovable property like land and houses couldn’t wait for either their construction or completion and they are already speculative that they would soon be laughing all the way to the bank as the roads in question were bound to help their investments appreciate quickly enough hence make them realize handsome returns on their investments soon.
‘’This is a godsend opportunity for real estate and property investments around this locality. The roads will not only improve local infrastructural connection but will again surely transform businesses and people’s lives. I’ve been involved in a land dealership for quite long and I can definitely tell a game-changer when one shows up. These two key roads are,’’ elaborated John Mburu Gathuu a land broker.
Even local real estate and property management firms like our own couldn’t be left behind as they were also full of praise and compliment for the groundbreaking initiative.
‘’The hearts of those of us in real estate and attendant investments are full of joy. Our heartbeats can only accelerate in great anticipation for the good tidings ahead. We can’t really thank our leaders sufficiently enough and we thank God for endowing them with exemplary lobbying skills which have surely brought about the consummation of these key projects, observed Mercy Kamau Bahai Investments Limited’s manager.
