ODM Party leader Raila Odinga has addressed the progress of the Green Park bus terminus.
On Thursday the AU envoy said he was impressed by the progress of the project after visiting the site with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
"I'm impressed by the progress of works being carried out at the Green Park bus terminus that I saw during an inspection tour of projects with President Uhuru Kenyatta. The Green Park is a major step towards making Nairobi a friendlier, less congested, and livable city," he said.
The Head of State took the former premier on a tour of the newly constructed Green Park Bus Terminus. In a video seen by NairobiLeo.co.ke, the two leaders were guided through their tour by engineers of the project.

They engaged members of the public who were present at the terminus, with some of them chanting the ODM leader's name. They were shown to the translucent waiting bays and informed by the engineers that a supermarket and health centre would be put up in the park.
"This will be a restaurant, will also have a supermarket, we are sourcing people who want to invest. We will have waiting rooms and the screen with information will be in this room. There will be a public address system like the airport," an engineer explained to the Head of State.
Businesspeople at the park expressed their gratitude to the Head of State, noting that the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) had offered them other sites to operate their businesses from, amid the construction.
Upon completion, the Green Park Terminus is expected to handle about 180,000 commuter vehicles on a daily basis.
President Kenyatta and Odinga were shown the new technology installed at the bus park and would connect to passenger mobile phones to notify them when their rides are due.
