KENHA Issues Traffic Advisory Ahead of Mashujaa Day

The Kenya National Highways Authority(KENHA) on Friday, October 15, issued a traffic advisory for motorists ahead of the Mashujaa day celebrations. 

In preparation for the celebrations which will be held at Wang’uru stadium in Kirinyaga on Wednesday,October 20, KENHA has issued a notice on the routes motorists are advised to use. 

This is because of the ongoing construction of the Sagana highway, hence high traffic is to be expected. 

Motorists that will be heading to different destinations from Nairobi via the highway, will be highly affected. 

“Members of the public attending the celebrations will access the venue via the Kenol-Sagana-Marua road which is currently under construction,” an excerpt from the notice read. 

KENHA has notified the public that traffic will be high along Sagana town, the Kenol Township pavement, the Muranga Teachers Training college, Sabasaba bridge and Makutano junction. 

High congestion shall also be expected along the Karema Kiangwaci section, Kibingoti area, Kangocho-Jambo section, Tumutumu junction and Wariruta town. 

All these road sections will be greatly affected by traffic because of the ongoing construction of the carriageway. 

For motorists proceeding from Nairobi, KENHA has advised that they use alternative routes like the Samson’s Corner-Kutus-Sagana-Murang’a-Kenol and the Kiganjo-Nyeri-Othaya-Murang’a-Kenol. 

As a result, motorists are hereby advised to use the Kenol-Murang'a-Sagana stretch, the Kenol-Murang’a-Geitwa-Kiriani-Othaya-Nyeri stretch and the Sagana-Mukurweini-Karatina stretch. 

Notably, the authority mentioned that observing traffic rules would be mandatory, and all motorists shall be expected to follow directives given by the police. 

“Motorists are advised to exercise caution and road courtesy while using the road. Overlapping is strictly prohibited and traffic offenders will be prosecuted," the notice affirmed.
