Mombasa Port will begin more construction on its second container terminal in January 2018, according to Standard Digital.
The Managing Director of Kenya Ports Authority (KPA), Catherine Mturi-Wairi, has reportedly secured a $339 million loan from the Japanese government.
Work on the second phase of the terminal project aims to expand the port’s capacity by 450,000 TEU.
Completion of the first phase added 550,000 TEU in September 2016.
Mombasa Port’s expansion stands to gain from work on the $58.7 million Changamwe-Mariakani dual carriageway, a project that is creating six lanes for traffic travelling from the Mombasa Island to Jomvu, and four lanes from Jomvu to Mariakani.
