The Lamu Port, South Sudan, Ethiopia Transport Corridor (LAPSSET) is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Kenya. It is being carried out as one of the flagship projects under Kenya’s Vision 2030. 1 The project spans three countries: Kenya, South Sudan and Ethiopia, but the benefits anticipated from the project are expected to span the entire Eastern African region. It is a major infrastructure development project that involves developing a transport corridor from a new Port in Lamu through the towns of Garissa, Isiolo, Maralal, Lodwar and Lokichoggio to branch at Isiolo to Ethiopia and South Sudan. 2 The corridor is made up of a new road network, railway line, oil refinery at Lamu, oil pipeline, Lamu Airport and free port at Lamu (Manda Bay) in addition to resort cities at the coast and in Isiolo. 3 The project is expected to spur economic growth in Kenya and open up regions which were hitherto underdeveloped. In March, 2013, the LAPSSET Corridor Development Authority was created to plan, coordinate and manage implementation of all LAPSSET projects.
