To reduce cases of accidents in the city and to reduce congestion of human traffic in the busy streets of Nairobi,the government rolled out a programme to construct footbridges especially at the pedestrian crossing points. A new problem however has emerged of traders selling their wares in these footbridges jeopardizing the main role they were constructed for. The traders are blocking pedestrian ways with wares and the government through Kenya Urban Roads Authority,KURA have been asked to intervene.
"This is now the new picture of the newly constructed pipeline stage footbridge along Outer Ring Road,traders have taken over it. @KURA ,kindly intervene to give pedestrians freedom to use it." Read the tweet shared by Ma3Route.
Road side sellers in the city have been blamed for blocking roads with their wares and the government should stand strong to ensure our roads especially the city roads are safe for travellers. They should be relocated to market places.
