The firm that fixed perennial flooding at the busy Thika Super Highway wll now maintain the Thika to Kenol Road.

Debroso Construction Company designed, drenched, and fixed underground drained works at Museum Hill, Kahawa Wendani, and Juja, eradicating mega drainage challenges and accidents.

Debroso maintained Thika Super Highway on a 24-hour basis, cleared stalled accident vehicles, and fixed broken surface shoulders.

The firm recarpeted the road on a need basis and was paid based on work done.

The Kenyan-owned construction firm landed a second contract for maintenance of the Thika-Kenol highway at a cost of Sh754.4 million.

The first road section runs from Delmonte to Kenol, covering a total distance of 11 kilometers (km) in one direction and another 22 kilometers (km) in dual carriage. 

The second 9.4-kilometer section, also known as the old Murang’a road, begins in Delview and ends at the Thika-Kenol highway. 

According to a report on the Nation, Debroso won the contract over three competitors. Prime Auto & General Trading Enterprises, Four Way Construction Company Limited, and Buildlink Development Limited were among the companies involved. 

Only Debroso passed the preliminary evaluation stage of the contract bidding and was later given a score of 75% in the technical evaluation, exceeding the pass mark. 

In comparison to the other bidders, the successful bidder quoted the second-lowest fee.

Prime Auto & General Trading Enterprises quoted Sh688.55 million, Four Way Construction Company (Sh905.67 million), and Buildlink Development (Sh783.37 million).
