The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) notified the public that normal traffic flow on major roads will be interfered with due to ongoing construction of the Nairobi Expressway.
A notice dated Saturday, September 26, KeNHA stated that the closure of the section would affect other motorists in Nairobi, especially those travelling along Mombasa Road and Uhuru Highway.
According to the statement, 500 metres on Waiyaki Way from Goodman Tower to Sanlam Tower will be closed from Saturday, September 26, 2020, to April 1, 2021.
KeNHA directed that all vehicles from City Centre headed towards James Gichuru should turn left into the service road before St. Mark’s Footbridge and rejoin Waiyaki Way after Mvuli Road.
“Motorists are further requested to follow directions as shall be indicated on the road signage provided, and/or by traffic marshals on-site,” KeNHA Director General Eng. Peter Mundinia stated.
“We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused as we endeavour to improve the existing infrastructure along this critical section of the Mombasa – Nairobi Highway (A8 Road), " he added.
The construction of the dual carriage Nairobi Expressway has started, indicating a possible end to traffic jams in the capital.
