A German company that specialises in road construction, equipment and mineral extraction technologies wants to partner with Makueni county.
It is one of several local and international organisations that have shown interest in these projects in Kivutha Kibwana’s county.
Wirtgen Group expressed its intentions during the Road Technology Days 2018 workshop in Ludwigshafen, which began on Friday and will end in four days.
The company wants to construct low cost rural sector roads.
Makueni County Roads executive Sebastian Kyoni, who is in Germany, said the county was open to this.
“I have represented our case very well so we are hopeful that the interest shown by the Wirtgen Group will be escalated,” he said in a statement on Saturday, adding 4,000 delegates attended the workshop.
The company will also help with the acquisition of equipment and technology transfer to the county roads team, through its Kenya subsidiary Panafrican Equipment.
This comes shortly after a bridge at Matiliku on Emali-Wote road was swept by floodwaters.
Meanwhile, Makueni MP Daniel Maanzo has demanded that the national and county governments release money for the repair of many roads in the Country that had been damaged by floods.
