Reports indicate that most accident victims are pedestrians. Pedestrian infrastructure in Nairobi is in questionable state with recent picture shared via Ma3Route even making it worse.
Mombasa Road from where Nairobi Expressway is being built has now been highlighted to be a road of lack of dignity for the pedestrians who are the majority in Nairobi.
Sources report that the pedestrian crossing on Mombasa Road along the Syokimau-Katani road has been technically closed.
The pedestrian crossing has been closed but there is no Footbridge for them to use,a situation that has raised concerns from Kenyans.
This has led to a sad scene on the road with pedestrians now forced to scale over the wall to pass through to the highway before ducking dangerously to the other side
Kenya National Highways Authority, KeNHA should look into this matter and restore dignity for the pedestrians,a situation that may also save lives on the road.
A footbridge should be built immediately for the pedestrians.
