The development of the Nairobi Expressway is expected to generate traffic congestion on some roads, as the contractor runs against time to deliver the key road.
In its update, Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) said Congestion may still be experienced at the GM area, as well as the Bunyala roundabout and Uhuru highway, where box girder lifting is taking place.
David Muchilwa, the Director-General of the KeNHA, apologized for any disruption caused by the work, which he stated is currently at 62 percent completion.
Movement between Nairobi and Machakos counties has become a nightmare as a result of the expressway work, with motorists backed up for hours during rush hour.
However, the acting Director general urged motorists to be patient and use the correct diversions to avoid unnecessary snarl ups.
So far the construction of a viaduct connecting the southern bypass junction to the Westlands region is far ahead of schedule.
Motorists will be charged to drive on the expressway, which runs from Mlolongo in Machakos County to the James Gichuru Road junction in Nairobi.
As the project nears completion, China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), the company hired by the Kenyan government to build and operate the road, has advertised opportunities for toll attendants.
