The Missing Links project is implemented by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) and jointly funded by the European Union and the Government of Kenya.

A sustainable and safe road network contributes to economic growth and improvement of living standards. This is why the European Union supports the Nairobi Missing Link Roads and Non-motorised Transport Facilities Project.

The Missing Links project is implemented by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) and jointly funded by the European Union and the Government of Kenya. Some of the sub-projects are nearly complete: these include Rabai Road NMT, Lusaka Road, and Muratina Road. Another on-going sub-project is Ring Road Parklands, with a total length of about 3.5 kms (Wayaki Way-Limuru Road) that includes a section of the Deep Sea informal settlement stretching for about 380m on the road reserve.

The European Union is fully committed to ensuring that the project is implemented swiftly while human rights standards are fully respected. This includes the resettlement process in the Deep Sea informal settlement area. On this issue, the EU will continue to liaise with Kenyan authorities, in particular KURA, to ensure that the implementation of this project follows due process and does not lead to any human rights violation.  Read more about this project
