Muthaiga-Kiambu road to remain closed for 4 days
The Muthaiga-Kiambu road will remain closed for four days starting February 12, 2022, at 6 am.
In a notice by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA), the road will be closed to pave way for the construction of a footbridge at Km 0+500.
The construction work according to KeNHA is expected to last on February 15, 2022.
Motorists have been advised to use an alternative route to avoid snarl up along the busy highway.
They include; Muthaiga Road-Serengeti Avenue-Mau Park Road, Kiambu Road
-Pipeline Estate Road-Coffee Garden Dr. Road, Kiambu Road
-Coffee Garden Dr. Road-Kiambu Road
-Ridgways Road-Kiambu Road.
Closure of the road follows the rapid development of real-estate along the area that has led to traffic build-up on the narrow single-lane road during rush hour.
The government has already put in place plans to reconstruct the busy road, which will see a 15-kilometer highway from Muthaiga interchange to Ndumberi via Kiambu town converted into a dual carriage.
A feasibility study had already been conducted for the dual carriage, which was approved by the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA).
