Transport Infrastructures Featured

An efficient and reliable transport system is vital for the growth of any economy in the world. Because of its intensive use, transport sector is an important component of the economy and a common tool used for development. This is even more so in a global economy where economic opportunities are increasingly related to the mobility of people, goods and information. A relation between the quantity and quality of transport infrastructure and the level of economic development is apparent.

High density transport infrastructure and highly connected networks are commonly associated with high levels of development. When transport systems are efficient, they provide economic and social opportunities and benefits that result in positive multipliers effects such as better accessibility to markets, employment and additional investments. When transport systems are deficient in terms of capacity or reliability, they can have an economic cost such as reduced or missed opportunities and lower quality of life.

Kitui County has 210.2 km of bitumen roads, 1564.9 km of gravel surface and 1846.7 km of earth surface roads. In addition to this, the county has three airstrips; Ithookwe, Tseikuru and Mutomo airstrips. At the aggregate level, efficient transportation reduces costs in many economic sectors, while inefficient transportation increases these costs.

Transport contributes to economic development through job creation and its derived economic activities. Accordingly, a large number of direct and indirect (insurance, finance, packaging, handling, travel agencies, transit operators) employment are associated with transport. Producers and consumers take economic decisions on products, markets, costs, location, prices which are themselves based on transport services, their availability, costs and capacity.
