Road Accident

HAPPENING NOW: Heavy Traffic Congestion in Nairobi Meru Highway

Currently the Nairobi Meru highway is impassable with heavy congestion being witnessed from Thika road to Kabati. This is after a recovery towing vehicle and which was headed to Kenol developed some mechanical problem and stopped in one of the lanes of the road. This has really affected the road users who are now forced to use one lane.

The road which attracts hundreds of users each hour is now totally congested. Some motorists especially those headed to Murang'a are now diverting at bluepost area towards Gatanga and later accessing Murang'a from Kandara. Traffic police are currently in the place of scene and are working out to have the vehicle pushed from the road to the road reserve.

This section of the road is dual carriage and has not affected vehicles moving to Thika and Nairobi in the other side of the road. The lack of a rescue and recovery team in this major highway usually affects motorists whenever something hsppens. The current situation could have been avoided if there was a good coordination between the haighway management authority and any rescue team on standby.
