After the heavy rains of May and last week, the road sector of the Ministry of Transport has decided to intervene to repair the damage sustained by the main road artery of Malindi, or the so-called "highway" that has always (and increasingly anachronistic) passes through the center, from the airport to the roundabout (roundabout) to the Police Station and from there, becoming Lamu Road to the river Sabaki.
Within three days the wide and deep holes that had formed and put in serious danger the vehicles that passed through it and the traffic in general were identified and in the night between Saturday and Sunday the usual tar-based patches were used, which certainly do not solve the problem definitively, but at least temporarily limit it.
At this point the paradoxical situation becomes even more evident (for a town with a tourist vocation, certainly not for Africa...) of the seafront of the town, whose main road, from the fish market to Vasco Da Gama Road, is in really disastrous conditions.
By now here there is no more talk of holes but of road surface totally bumpy and burdened by continuous repairs to the good that have almost made things worse. Immediate intervention by the County of Kilifi is urgently needed, because the city streets outside the "highway" Malindi-Lamu, are of its relevance. Even the road to Casuarina, between the roundabout and the district hospital, are beginning to be studded with holes.
As always, it is expected that before the high season, something will happen, although in truth definitive interventions would be desirable.
