The Sh.1.7 billion Likoni floating footbridge linking Mombasa Island to the mainland south was today officially opened for use to the members of the public. This is the first pedestrian footbridge to be built at the likoni crossing channel and the project is undertaken by the State Department of Infrastructure through its implementing agency, the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA). The bridge project is expected to end the perennial human congestion at vital busy crossing channels and to ease pressure of overcrowded Likoni ferries during the current coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. While addressing the media after inspecting the opening of the pedestrian footbridge to the members of public Coast Regional Commissioner (RC) John Elungata said the project has created the shortest route linking Mombasa Island and mainland south and onward to the neighboring Kwale County thus reducing the link distance and cutting on time spent on queuing to board the ferries. #KENYANewsMEDIA
