Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki has asked contractors working on six roads in the county to fast track their work.

Contractors doing shoddy work or doing it slowly risk having their contracts terminated and their companies blacklisted, he said on Saturday.

He spoke after inspecting progress of six roads.

Kindiki said only two out of the six roads under construction are on schedule.

"We have a problem with four roads. These contractors should pull up their socks or risk their contracts being cancelled," he said.
