Traffic to be interrupted as sections of Waiyaki Way to be closed until 2021
The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has notified the public that normal traffic flow on some sections of Mombasa Road, Uhuru Highway and Waiyaki Way will be interfered with due to ongoing construction of the Nairobi Expressway.
The authority, in a statement released on Saturday, said 500 metres on Waiyaki Way from Goodman Tower to Sanlam Tower will be closed from Saturday September 26, 2020 to April 1, 2021.
KeNHA hence 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.
Pedestrians have also since been advised to use the designated pedestrian crossing in front of Park Inn Hotel.
“Motorists are further requested to follow directions as shall be indicated on the road signage provided, and/or by traffic marshals on site,” said KeNHA Director General Eng. Peter Mundinia.
“We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused as we endeavor to improve the existing infrastructure along this critical section of the Mombasa – Nairobi Highway (A8 Road).”
