The problem of congestion in Mombasa road is not ending soon. Today people were forced to spend hours in the road as a standoff existed between motorists who chose to remain stationary at the expense of using the exit routes created by the contractor.
The contractor building the expressway has been blocking some sections of the road without notice something which has resulted to serious congestion. The building of the alternative exit routes was in honor of the ministry order to do that whenever they choose to close the road.
Motorists who failed to use the road were arguing of the roads conditions. Which are poorly made and dusty though the contractor has sprinkled water in some sections of the road, they remain dusty as they are not compacted. PSV drivers complained of the exits being far from their destinations in the CBD something which is not only expensive but also time consuming.
Currently the contractor has reopened the road something which has happened this evening and towards the rush hour. Alternative exits are expected to be made by tommorow to ensure efficiency while the contractor is working.
