Road Accident

KeNHA Warns Motorists on Mombasa Road to Expect Major Traffic Congestion at Mlolongo Area

With Kenyans waiting patiently for the completion of the construction of the Nairobi Expressway, more and more inconveniences seem to be cropping up. The project that was expected to be completed by end of this year has already seen a large percentage of the works done.

This evening another advisory has been issued by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) regarding the possibility of delays due to traffic congestion. This according to KeNHA is due to a section around Mlolongo being reduced to just one lane on the Athi River bound road.

The authority however assured the road users of this section that the contractor was working tirelessly to ensure that normalcy was restored as soon as possible. They also stated that there were traffic police on site to help in controlling movement of the vehicles.

Motorists were urged to practice courtesy on the road as the situation is being worked on for a resolution. Most of the regular users of the Mombasa road have had to endure long traffic jams that have resulted in major delays.

Once completed the users of the expressway will be required to pay a toll fee to utilize the road. The aim of this road is to reduce travel time between JKIA area to Nairobi CBD and Westlands area. This was necessitated by the endless traffic congestion that had been synonymous with most parts of Mombasa Road.
