The Nairobi Expressway (City Game Changer)

Kenya's government through the China Road and Bridge Corporation is building a Sh62 billion expressway that is set to revolutionalize transport within the Nairobi Capital.

Traffic jams in the Nairobi metropolis which costs the government a whopping Sh 2 billion every year prompted the construction of the road. The expressway which construction is ongoing is designed to have 8,6 and 4 lanes which are based on traffic demands along the route. On completion the toll expressway will reduce the travel time to between 15 and 20 minutes from Mlolongo to James Gichuru on Waiyaki Way.

Interregional highways (connecting the 3 countries)

2) Oil Pipelines (connecting the 3 countries)

3) Interregional Standard Gauge Railways

4) 3 Interregional Airports each at Lamu, Isiolo and Lake Turkana.

5) 3 Resort Cities each at Lamu, Isiolo and Lake Turkana.

The Standard Gauge Railway

At a cost of Sh327 billion, the Standard Gauge Railway became the largest infrastructural project in Kenya since independence.
