Traffic delays in Mombasa experience traffic delays

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) has announced a planned traffic obstruction on a section of Mombasa Road.

Through a notice shared on social media on Friday August 6th.

According to KURA, the disruption will begin on Monday, August 9, at a date that has not yet been specified when the road expansion will be completed.

The disruption should enable the road to be expanded into an expressway.

“Please note that from Monday, August 9, 2021, there will be only minimal traffic disruption on Enterprise Road from Kartasi Roundabout to General Motors (Mombasa Road). This should enable the road to be expanded into a dual carriageway, ”KURA stated.

Mombasa Road is being upgraded to a two-lane road as the Nairobi Expressway continues to take shape.

Construction of the Nairobi Expressway, being carried out by the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), began in July 2020 and remarkable progress has been made a year later.

A towering piece of infrastructure is already floating on the Uhuru Highway in Nairobi, the City Cabanas and the Westlands along the Waiyaki Way.

The expressway will have 10 interchanges, including the SGR and JKIA interchanges, the east bypass, the Capital Center, Haile Selassie, the Thika intersection, the Westland interchange and James Gichuru.

The infrastructure, which once completed will be one of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s legacy projects, is expected to reduce traffic problems, particularly along the Mombasa Strait.

The approximate time from Mlolongo, where the project starts, to Westlands is expected to be 20 minutes.
