What you need to know:

  • Motorists may also begin paying tolls on the highway “in the near future” after a feasibility study currently under way.
  • The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has contracted a transaction adviser funded through the World Bank to carry out the study.
  • Several sections along the highway still have bumps and rumble strips meant to slow down traffic to allow for pedestrians to cross.
  • Some of the crossing spots that are yet to get footbridges, such as near Survey of Kenya, have become notorious for snarl-ups during morning and evening rush hours.

About 12 more footbridges will soon be added to the current 18 along Thika Road to ease traffic jams at various spots where bumps are yet to be removed.
