The days have been hectic, with bureaucratic procedures to be carried out, technical deadlines to be respected and some disputes (fortunately resolved) with the occupants, legitimate or illegitimate, of the seafront land of the Malindi area that goes from the jetty and the fish market to the great baobab before the pillar of Vasco Da Gama.
The construction of the Malindi seafront public park with tourism and sport infrastructures have finally begun.
The contractor of the works, Tracon Ltd of Mombasa, has started to unload the materials on site to start as soon as possible.
As malindikenya.net has already explained in the past few months, the project includes the reconstruction of the jetty, the paving of a large adjacent area to make car parks, the construction of a football field with changing rooms and showers, two volleyball courts, gardens for children, a refreshment area with three kiosks and benches, plus gardens connected to each other, as well as the other areas, by paths with colored floors and street lamps. In the areas of access to the beach is also provided for the possibility of creating spaces for deckchairs and sunbeds.
The redevelopment also includes planting of palms and other plants, placement of bins for separate collection, while the plan presented in the municipality is not provided for the renovation of the road.
"For that we await the green light of the competent authority - explained Town Manager Silas Ngundo, who is working hard to improve Malindi - but we hope to be able to act simultaneously, to have an attractive area for tourists and residents from all points of view.
The whole operation, as already written several times, is possible thanks to the financing of the World Bank, obtained thanks to the British High Commission and coordinated by experts in environmental impact.
