Motorists association of Kenya has today said through a Facebook post that Njiru bridge along Njiru Mwiki Kasarani Road has continually killed and maimed people due to lack of guard rails and blamed Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) for the mess.
“Lack of guard rails at Njiru Bridge along Njiru Mwiki Kasarani Road continue to kill and maim. It has remained like that despite the matter being raised severally. This road is under KURAroads,” the post read. Many accidents have occurred in the spot with some vehicles falling off the bridge into the river.
The association added that the excuse for vandalism as reason for not installing guard rails is not convincing enough because the engineers at KURA can do a concrete guard which no one can dare vandalize.
Facebook users also wondered why a road can be constructed without guard rails on a bridge. Others blamed the drivers for reckless driving and the CS for roads Eng. Macharia for poor leadership. We hope KURA will act quickly and install guard rails.
