KeNHA to resolve traffic disruption caused by Nairobi Expressway construction
Published on: May 18, 2021 11:04 (EAT)
The ongoing construction of the Nairobi Expressway and relocation of utilities such as water pipes and power lines has resulted in disruption of traffic flow along the highway. The Kenya National Highways Authority said it is working jointly with police to restore normalcy on the A8 road from Mlolongo to James Guchuru. KeNHA noted that the ongoing rains have created further constrictions as the relocation works in some instances have interfered with the existing side drainage leading to blockage. “We take note of the public concerns and wish to inform you that we are working closely with the Traffic Police to manage the situation to minimise the inconveniences currently being experienced by road users and motorists,” read part of the statement. Following this, KeNHA has initiated improvement works at locations such as Nyayo Stadium roundabout to ensure the drainage remains free flowing at all affected locations. The move comes as a reprieve to motorists plying the route, with gridlocks lasting hours experienced recently.
