Investors cry for by-pass to South Coast

Filed under: Introduction — parto @ 12:05 pm

Improved transport network in Ukunda and Diani would spur growth of towns in the towns. Hoteliers say the tourist haven of the South Coast, currently recording a paltry 30% hotel occupancy, could fully realise its pontential if the government builds the proposed Dongo-Kundu by-pass to the South Coast.

The likoni ferry crossing had negatively affected  tourism in the region.Tourists are delayed for more than two hours at the Likoni ferry on their way to the Moi International Airport.If the by-pass is built Diani would emerge as the tourist destination of choice at the Coast if the Government develops the neglected Ukunda Arstrip into an International Airport.

Diani has pristine beaches ans exclusive resorts but the problem is that the Infrastructure has not been developed in to march the growth in tourism.
