Motorists have been advised to expect continued traffic on some sections of roads caused by the construction of the Nairobi Expressway.
In a notice on Monday, the Kenya National Highways Authority said congestion could still be experienced at the GM area where a footbridge is being installed as well as the Bunyala roundabout and Uhuru highway where hoisting of box girders is ongoing
KeNHa Director general David Muchilwa apologised for any inconvenience that may be caused in the construction which he said stands at 62 per cent overall progress.
The expressway construction has turned Nairobi into a nightmare with cars piling up for hours during rush hour.
Overlapping and resulting accidents have become a common feature, despite the deployment of additional traffic police.
Billions of shillings have been set aside for traffic management.
The Authority announced opening dates for the remaining closed sections to ease the traffic situation.
The JKIA -Mlolongo and the Westlands – James Gichuru sections will be opened on September 30. The Haile Selassie – UoN Roundabout section will be unblocked on October 15.
The 18.5km road starts at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and ends at the James Gichuru Junction along Waiyaki Way in Westlands.
The official name is the JKIA-James Gichuru Expressway.
