The highway was first built by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) as a single carriage in 2014, before being converted to a four-lane carriage way in 2017.

Nairobi Southern Bypass Highway

This is a four-lane dual carriageway which was constructed by the China Road and Bridge construction Company at a cost of Sh18 billion. It is a 10 kilometres long Highway linking the Mombasa Road and Likoni Road to Gitaru and Kikuyu town in Kiambu County.
