Traffic along Waiyaki Way will be disrupted and diverted as KeNHA removes the St Mark’s bridge in Westlands.

This is to allow the ongoing construction of Nairobi Expressway, KeNHA director general Peter Mundinia said in a statement on Saturday.

The disruption will take place between September 26 and April 1, 2021.

Mundinia said Waiyaki Way from Goodman Tower to Sanlam Tower will be closed completely.

All vehicles from CBD to James Gichuru Road will have to turn left into the service road before the St Mark’s footbridge and rejoin Waiyaki Way after Mvuli Road.

“Pedestrians are advised to use designated pedestrian crossing in front of Park Inn Hotel,” he said. 

The disruption will also affect some sections of Mombasa Road and Uhuru Highway during the construction of Nairobi Expressway.

The construction of the dual carriage Nairobi Expressway has started, signalling a possible end to traffic jams in the city.

Excavators, rollers, graders, loaders and bulldozers are busy doing preliminary groundwork on the area.

Dozens of heavy-duty tippers are parked at an already cleared area near Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

The Chinese-funded project is a public private partnership.
