The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has announced the rehabilitation of Mombasa Road after the construction of the Nairobi Expressway.
In a statement on Saturday, November 19, KenHA stated that the MOJA Expressway Company Limited, which built the expressway, is working on repairing sections of the highway where damage was caused.
"The project company and developer of the Nairobi Expressway, MOJA Expressway Company Limited through their Engineer, Procure and Construct (EPC) Contractor CALE Infrastructure Construction Company, is progressively working to repair sections of the prior existing Mombasa Road where damage was directly caused during the construction of the Nairobi Expressway," KeNHA stated.
KeNHA, however, added that it will cater for damages caused by relocation works that affected side walks, footpaths, and drainage.
"KeNHA has committed funds for these repair works, and continues to coordinate with the government utility companies to ensure they effectively attend to their assigned repair works," KeNHA stated.
The highways authority announced the construction of five pedestrian footbridges between Mlolongo and the Southern Bypass Interchange, and along the Westlands section between Aga Khan School and the junction to Brookside Drive.
KeNHA further stated that pedestrian footpaths will be included in the works to be undertaken so as to improve the safety of pedestrians.
It added that the construction work to be done by the MOJA expressway company will be completed before the end of the year.
