The National Construction Authority was part of a delegation led by Eastern Regional Commissioner Isaiah Nakoru that inspected the Isiolo International Airport on Thursday, 20th February.

The team, which included representatives of various government agencies covering the Eastern Region, was hosted by the Kenya Airports Authority. The Isiolo Airport, a Vision 2030 flagship project is part of the Lamu Port South Sudan and Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) was opened in July 2017. There are upgrade and renovation plans underway, especially to extend the current runway from 1.5 KM runway to the globally accepted 2.5 KM length.

The team also inspected the ongoing construction of a primary school, whose project owner is KAA. The school is to house the students of an existing property that stands within the flight path of planes taking off and landing from the airport which will eventually be removed.
