About the website of the Kenyan Urban Roads Authority
As the Kenyan Urban Roads Authority is concerned with the roads network in in the cities of Kenya, it is a Government service where (almost) every Kenyan and visitor to Kenya in one way (literally...) or another has made use of, though most of the time not realizing who is actually the force behind the maintenance of the urban road network. To enhance awareness and promote participation, it became necessary to create a system where as much as possible information about the Kenyan urban road network can be found (like all official roads map available about the Kenyan Urban Road Network) and where visitors to the website can interact with and contact the Kenyan Urban Roads Authority in the easiest way.

To be able to store large amounts of information, SasaHivi Media has produced the website based on a database driven system. The information in the database is accessible and editable through a Content Management System, which ensures that pages and sections can be added or removed easily at any time by the Kenyan Urban Roads Authority staff.

The website sets new standards for Kenyan Government websites because of the state of the art structure and the huge amount of documents and information. Currently, the website of the Kenyan Urban Roads Authority is one of the most efficient and extensive websites which are in use by the Kenyan Government.

To give you an impression of the information to be found on the website, have a look at its structure (divided into main sections and sub-sections):
