The transport sector is a major drive in an economy exposing business opportunities. Reliable access to goods and products is often witnessed by a good road network. The Nairobi to Limuru highway has not been accepted by such a scenario leaving different entrepreneurs with ideas on how to tap on their chances.

Such a large-scale infrastructure project transforms the area coverage of expeditious growing towns, thus becoming popular in the government manner of attracting investors. Multiple investors eye such attention by a guaranteed reduction in transport cost and reduced destination delivery time. With all other business factors kept constant, the land next to the highway is now being put to use to improve goods and service productivity. 

A drive along the highway would clearly show you the works on the ground changing the physical outlook of the highway corridor. The land used by the expansion has been compensated to their owners providing sufficient capital needed for an investment in their remaining portions. Land value has been on the rise since the beginning of the expansion due to the foreseen production capabilities. 

New households have been seen coming up with more construction sites that take shape while other businesses are being set up, creating income and job opportunities. More households and estates are expected to come up due to the increasing number of residents witnessed. 

Existing businesses have been seen expanding amid some being brought down due to the expansion. Both small and large-scale investors are grabbing the opportunities being put in place. A small retailer in Kangemi can have more sales of his products since bus companies find it comfortable having their offices situated there. Fast food lovers can now access the products without having to access their distanced locations. Factories and companies have set up branches while others relocate along the highway to enable a sufficient centralized location. Bringing such services closer to residential areas improves the market access of the businesses. 

China Road Bridge Corporation recently acquired a private land located opposite Kabete Police Station to set up an assembly point with the aim of fast-tracking the Nairobi Expressway project. Composing a cement factory, the assembly does not need imported cement outside Nairobi, finding an easy way to reduce the cost of their infrastructural projects.

From Gitaru junction to Rironi, petroleum companies have set up different fueling stations capturing motorists moving to the western part of the country and the larger East Africa region. Accessing the Nairobi Nakuru highway from Mombasa Road through the southern bypass has been a favorite route by cargo trucks favoring fuel re-fill along Gitaru to the Rironi section. Foreign and local petroleum companies consider the section oil mines since motorists from the city and Nairobi-Mombasa highway converge at this point onward.

Yet to be completed, the highway has already established crucial opportunities for investors to harvest. Some have already taken their chances while others are still betting on the investment upon completion. More investments result in more money circulation, hence more employment opportunities. 

Physical infrastructure development has been anchored by road development over the years affecting social-economic environments. Natural resources competitions occur between old habitats and new investors affecting living conditions in the environment. Solving transport problem comes along with solving diverse economic issues witnessed in the area.

The city congestion is believed to reduce not only because of the expansion but also with various products and services that come to the doorstep, resulting in no need for accessing the city. Growth of surrounding city towns will feel the boost of growth with time depending on the rate of development and their connection with other major towns.
