Mombasa road has become the talk of the town for the last two days. This after the expressway contractor blocked a section of the road. Motorists were diverted to use a different channel past the General Motors. This has received criticism and made motorists get a new way of handling the situation.
Public Service vehicles are no longer completing the journey to the Central Business District. Those in the road and commuting from Mlolongo, Athiriver, Machakod and places of Kitengela are forced to use two commuter vehicles. Around GM passengers alight and walk past the road block. Here they take another vehicle to the CBD.
Each Sacco is using this strategy, something which has solved the congestion in the road. Only private car users are using the diversion making it effective. Though passengers are complaining of exploitation, there is some good outcome from it to the private car users.
The contractor has been adviced to fasten the roadwork in this part of the road. This will be in a move meant to reopen this section and ensure there traffic flow.
