The construction of a modern lorry park at Salgaa trading center will spur economic growth of Nakuru County, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui has said.
Speaking in Salgaa Rongai Sub County, the Governor said that the center was strategically located along the Northern corridor and as such the programme will go a long way in attracting investors from within the country and abroad.
Salgaa trading center is a stopover for long distance trucks enroute to Uganda and central Africa.
The upgrading programme according to the Governor will include the installation of street lights that will facilitate 24-hour business operation.
Given that Salgaa is known for all the bad reasons ranging from commercial sex work to road accidents, Kinyanjui said that this was good news to local residents.
Talks are also at an advanced stage between the county government and the national government to construct a school near Salgaa so as to tame cases of children being knocked down by vehicles while crossing the road.
The community has been tasked with finding land where the school will be constructed.
