As part of climate Change Mitigation, KURA is set to unveil new set of contractors for routine maintenance of urban road network. The heavy rains experienced in the recent past calls for proactive approach to the maintenance of our road network. KURA advertised 309 contracts for routine maintenance of the roads many of whom are Projects Based Contracts (PBC) and will run for two concurrent years at the cost of Kshs.8billion. Maintenance of Nairobi County roads under KURA alone will cost kshs.1.9billion. This will cover major roads including Outer Ring Road, Northern and Eastern bypass, Red Hill Link, Langata Road, Ngong Road among many other roads. 
 “We want the Contractors to hit the ground running and to maintain the roads while they are still in good shape. The last contracts ended last month and the new contracts will last for the next two years. This creates seamlessness and KURA is determined to ensure urban road network is improved as they are highly motorized at all times’, Eng. Silas Kinoti, KURA Director General said. He noted that maintenance of a road network is very key to its longevity and the role of a routine contractor is to restore and maintain a road to its service level, seal potholes clean drainages, restore road furniture and other instructed works.  
KURA will collaborate with other players in the sector like County Governments and Kenya Roads Board to ensure Kenyans in the urban network enjoy quality roads during this holiday season. 
On road safety, The Director General urged the public to cooperate and prioritize road safety during the high movement season saying visibility in heavy rains and floods can be a great challenge for all motorists.
