List of items which won’t be allowed on Ksh.65 billion Nairobi Expressway
The much-awaited Nairobi Expressway is nearing completion, with the government saying the work is 95 percent complete.
In a notice by Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA), the mega project will be launched this month, (no specific date has been given) after some motorists had started using the highway.
But even as Kenyans await the date for the commissioning of the Ksh.65 billion highway, the government has clarified a number of items which will not be allowed on the highway.
According to a gazette notice dated December 31, 2020, any two-wheeled or three-wheeled item will not be allowed on the highway, including pedestrians and skaters.
Other items include; Motorbikes, TukTuks, wheelbarrows, trollies and handcarts.
The road is funded by Chinese government.
A toll fee will be applicable to use the highway to repay the loan which was borrowed for its construction.
The 27 kilometer highway will be managed by a foreign firm, Mega Expressway, a subsidiary of China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) for the next 28 years before handing it over to the Kenyan government.
