Nyaribari Chache MP Richard Tong'i has assured his constituents of accelerated development once feeder roads are tarmacked.

The contractor is on site, ready to upgrade more than 100km of roads across the subcounty to bitumen standard.

Tong'i said once concluded, the projects would improve development and ease the movement of goods to the market in the constituency.

"Good infrastructure is crucial to the development of a country. Our people, especially banana and sugar cane farmers, will benefit the most when construction is completed," Tong'i said.

Roads set for tarmacking include Nyanturago, Irondi, Chirichiro-Taracha, Nyaturubo-Riondong'a roads.

Others are Riariga-Getungurumu-Nyaguta-Nyanderema-Amariba and Matunwa.

 Nyakwana-Nyabisa-Kegati roads will also be done as well as Kisii University–Mwembe roads.

"Once completed, our constituency will improve greatly. More other roads will be done once this is over," the MP said.

Separately, Nyaribari Masaba MP Ezekiel Machogu has urged the contractor working on the Sosera-Getengereirie-Ekona-Ramasha-Kiomiti junction road to fast-track construction work.

"The more it delays, the more our people get agitated. That is why I ask the government to move in and address any budgetary constraints that may be affecting the contractor so that work is concluded at the appropriate time," Machogu told the Star on the phone.

The road is often muddy and impassable when it rains.

The MP said the project is among many others across the country that appear to have been forgotten.
