1.2 Why the LAPSSET Project?The LAPSSET Strategic Objectives: Enhancing Kenya’s position as a gateway & transport hub to the East African Sub-region and the Great Lakes Region; Establish a reliable access to the sea for Northern/Eastern parts of Kenya, South Sudan and Ethiopia; and Facilitating trade, regional economic integration and interconnectivity between African countries – i.e Ethiopia - South Sudan- Rwanda, DRC, up to Douala in Cameroon 8
1.2 Why the LAPSSET Project?–Cont.To develop Kenya’s 2nd Transport & EconomicCorridorTo reduce over-reliance on the only Corridor -(Northern Corridor)Improving livelihoods of over 15 million peoplein North Eastern, Eastern, Rift Valley and Coast.
1.2 Why the LAPSSET Project?–Cont.Facilitate trade and investment with South Sudan (over4 million people) and Ethiopia (over 80 millionpeople).Promotion of regional socio-economic developmentalong the transport corridor especially in the Northern,Eastern, North-Eastern and Coastal parts of Kenya.

1.4 Components of the Lamu Port –South Sudan –EthiopiaTransport (LAPSSET) Corridor Lamu Port at Manda Bay; Railway line from Lamu to Isiolo, Isiolo to South Sudan, and Isiolo to Ethiopia; Airports at Isiolo, Lamu and Lake Turkana/Lokichoggio; Highway from Lamu to Isiolo, Isiolo to South Sudan, and Isiolo to Ethiopia;
1.4 Components of the Lamu Port –South Sudan –EthiopiaTransport (LAPSSET) Corridor -Cont Resort Cities at Lamu, Isiolo and Lake Turkana; Oil Refinery at Lamu; and Oil Pipeline from Lamu to Isiolo, Isiolo to South Sudan, and Isiolo to Ethiopia.
2.0 Corridor Planning Stage Consultancy work for the Planning Stage of the Corridor is complete. It covered:(i) Feasibility study and preliminary designs for the seven components namely: port, railway line, oil refinery, oil pipeline, airports, Highway; and Resort Cities
2.0 Corridor Planning Stage -Cont (ii) Lamu Port Master Plan; (iii) Detailed Designs for the first three of thirty two (32) berths - General Cargo Berth, - Bulk Cargo Berth, and - Container Cargo Berths (iv) Associated port infrastructure Complete with tender documents
3.0 Findings Comprehensive surveys confirm suitability of the Manda Bay site for development of a port; The Manda Bay is well sheltered and has deep waters i.e 18m along main channel to 60m in the Bay; and Development of the thirty two (32) berth- Lamu Port at Manda Bay and Corridor Components is both financially and economically viable (EIRR between 12%-24%).
