Présentation
Transport and infrastructure development projects have become central in the progress agenda for Kenyan Counties, in particular Machakos County. The research project sought to offer an insight into road projects executed in Machakos County and methodologies used in implementation. The dependent variable discussed was the implementation of road infrastructure projects while the independent variables include ; project needs assessment, design methodology, stakeholder engagement, monitoring & evaluation, and post review systems of road infrastructural projects. A descriptive research design was employed to conduct the study. Structured questionnaires and interviews were used in collection of qualitative and quantitative data. The participants for the study included 14 county engineers employed on permanent basis by Machakos County Government, 40 ward representatives from the elected Machakos County Assembly members, and 14 road contractors who have completed construction of road project to bituminous standards. The target population was 68. Due to the small population and the need to increase data accuracy so that true findings would be acquired, a population census was conducted. The data acquired was analysed using percentages, frequencies, and presented in tables. The study based its conclusions on primary data sources retrieved from questionnaires administered with the aid of research assistants. The success of the dependent variable, which is implementation of road infrastructural projects, was based on user satisfaction, economic growth and expansion, and ability to ensure seamless connectivity within Machakos County.
