1 min read

Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen has today Wednesday, April 17, 2024 announced the establishment of a new task force dedicated to overseeing the implementation of the Smart Transport System (STS).

Speaking at the launch of the National Road Safety Action Plan 2024 – 2028 in Nairobi, Murkomen outlined plans for the digital transport system, which will incorporate the deployment of speed cameras.

The Mombasa – Malaba Highway, identified as a high-risk area for accidents, is slated to be one of the first highways to receive the new Smart Transport System. The task force, set to be gazetted within the next week, will comprise a collaborative multiagency team involving various government bodies such as the Judiciary, County and National governments, the police force, and the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).

“We are not just putting technology for enforcement of speed but also vehicular telematics; that technology is going to solve a lot of problems in this country,” Murkomen affirmed. He stressed the importance of relocating markets situated near roads to reduce road accidents, urging traders to utilize government-constructed markets.

CS Murkomen also highlighted the forthcoming comprehensive policy on road safety, emphasizing the integration of road designs with road safety measures. “For the first time since 1963, this county will have the first comprehensive policy on road safety that mandates road designs integrated with road safety,” Murkomen declared.
