The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has given a list of roads that are likely to experience crazy traffic snarl up from today due to the ongoing construction of the Nairobi Expressway.

While issuing a public notice on Friday through a statement, KeNHA cautioned motorists, commuters and other road users to prepare for congestion and traffic snarl ups.

Specifically, the area around General Motors (GM) is even worse in terms of traffic because contractors are making a road that will link it to the Nairobi Expressway.

An erection of a new pedestrian footbridge in the Mlolongo area is also set to cause one of the worst traffic conditions. As a result, KeNHA has urged road users to be cautious while using these spots.

Those living around the Syokimau area have also been warned of impending traffic following the closure of the service lane. Thus, motorists are either to make a U turn at all Park Service station or drive to Mlolongo just to make a turn.

Besides, Gateway Mall will most likely experience traffic because of the removal of the pipeline crossing below the Nairobi Expressway.

To add salt to the injury, Bunyala Roundabout heading towards the University way will also experience the same traffic issues because of the work around it.

KeNHA added that 82 percent of the Nairobi Expressway has so far been done with the rest of the work expected to finish by March this year.

“Motorists are urged to continue exercising caution and road courtesy as that will help manage traffic better. In the meantime, KeNHA is committed to ensuring timely completion of the Nairobi Expressway and delivery of the best services to customers and stakeholders at all times,” KeNHA stated.

The Nairobi expressway is currently being constructed through Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, all the way from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in the east and ends on the western side of Nairobi (Wastelands).

Once completed, the four-lane dual carriageway will run over 27km, linking Mlolongo town in Machakos county and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

The expressway is part of the northern corridor that offers passage to 85% of the cargo destined for neighboring landlocked countries, such as Rwanda, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda.
