  Mombasa (Kenya) Metropolitan - Urban Strategy Development Plan
  A natural port used for centuries as the gate to eastern Africa, Mombasa is set on a protected island with topography and an extension necessary to allow for substantial development. Mombasa has had strategic conditions to become a relevant city in the Indian Ocean. In its growth from city to metropolis it now faces the difficulties of scale. Those features that provided for its success now limit its efficiency in the next phase and scale of growth. The needs to connect the two magnificent harbors (east and west) to the outer locations along the coastline as well as to organize the inner structure of the island to reach the potential for developing the airport as a complementary infrastructure to the seaport, are central.
