The Board has invited sealed bids from eligible bidders for labour works contract to construct tertiary sewers of approximately 56 kilometers of length with household connections. The scope of work also involves proposed tertiary sewers and household connections that are intended to cover areas with no lateral sewers in order to operationalize the system once the main works are substantially complete. The project will focus on certain areas such as Membley, Gitambaya, Ruiru Town, Sections of Mugutha, Gatongora and Kiwanja locations in Kahawa.

 “Bidding will be conducted through National Competitive bidding procedures as specified in revised World Bank Procurement guidelines. The tender is open to eligible bidders and will be closed on March 1st 2016,” read part of the tender.

Construction of the project will take 12 months to complete. Once the project is operational residents of Ruiru are expected to be supplied with 13,000m³/d of treated water.
