A heavy traffic is expected this weekend along Thika Superhighway at Allsopps which will be under closure to facilitate the installation of overpass concrete beams on the ongoing construction of Outer Ring Road overpass.
Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) issued a statement on Wednesday stating that the City-bound expressway at Outer ring Road will be closed on Saturday, September 14, and Sunday, September 15.
All motorists will be required to use the service lane to access Nairobi Central Business District (CBD).
