KeNHA announces rehabilitation works on Southern Bypass with intermittent closures.


The Kenya National Highway Authority (KeNHA) announced that the Southern Bypass will undergo rehabilitation works for an unspecified period of time, leading to intermittent closures.

The rehabilitation exercise aims to increase the road’s longevity by surface dressing it with stone chippings and sprayed with bitumen binder, improving skidding resistance and protecting it against damage from still and running water.

KeNHA deployed traffic marshals to guide motorists through the area and advised caution when approaching the affected section of the road.

Motorists were advised to consider alternative routes to avoid traffic disruptions along the highway.

Those heading to Lang’ata were recommended to use Mombasa Road through Nyayo Stadium, while those heading to Kikuyu were advised to use Mombasa Road through James Gichuru.

Motorists heading to Ngong’ were advised to take the main highway, take a detour at Nyayo or Haile Selassie Avenue and proceed to Kenyatta National Hospital where they will offload to Ngong’ Road.

The Director-General of KeNHA, Kungu Ndung’u, announced that the Southern Bypass would be rehabilitated starting February 21.

He explained that the rehabilitation works would take an unspecified amount of time and would result in traffic disruptions.
