Kenya - North Eastern Transport Improvement Project : Environmental Assessment : Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for Upgrading to Bitumen Standards of Isiolo - Modogashe Road Section 190 km (A10-B84) (English)

The development objectives of the North Eastern Transport Improvement Project for Kenya are to improve the movement of goods and people along the Isiolo-Wajir section of the Isiolo-Garissa- Wajir- Mandera- Mogadishu road corridor and to enhance internet connectivity between Northeastern and the rest of Kenya. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) provide and implement a traffic management plan; (2) employee awareness on company procedures for dealing with spills and leaks from oil storage tanks; (3) provision of adequate drainage facilities to channel water from one side of the road to the other; (4) manual removal of the invasive species such as the Prosopis Juliflora (Mathenge) at material and work sites to prevent proliferation; (5) proper solid and liquid wastes disposal mainly from the construction camps, sites, and offices; (6) hiring unskilled construction and skilled (if available) labor from the local population as far as possible; (7) avoiding night time construction when noise is loudest near residential areas or areas near wildlife; (8) ensure that all construction machines and equipment are in good working conditions and to manufacturer’s specifications to prevent occupational hazards; and (9) ensuring than each employee signs a code of conduct that covers child protection. Ensuring no children are employed on site in accordance with national labor laws.
