Department Profile

The department is tasked with development, management, rehabilitation and maintenance of Transport Network and infrastructure facilities. The critical areas include road works, electrification, ICT, street lighting, firefighting, and parking.
The bulk of the road network (862 km) in the county falls under the unpaved status. The county has only 157 km of paved roads and 20 km of this is a highway currently under construction by KeNHA. We have formed a county roads technical committee comprising of roads agencies operating in the county such as KeRRA, KURA and CDF managers (Luanda, Emuhaya, Vihiga, Hamisi and Sabatia). This committee is tasked with developing an integrated roads work plan for the county including all aspects of coordination, supervision and enforcement of envisaged standards.
Our vision in the county is to increase paved roads by 50 km by the end of the 2018-2022 CIDP period. In addition, the department will engage Kenya Roads Board and other development agencies on matters related to policy development, upgrading of roads to paved status, capacity development of the staff and contractors, and purchase of our own plant and machinery.
