Drivers on the Nairobi Expressway have reported flooding as a result of the incomplete construction, and the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has responded.
The contractor is yet to finish the drainage system, according to a statement made by KeNHA on Monday, April 18th, as they labor around the clock to complete the 27-kilometer road.
Even as the city continues to get moderate rainfall, extra employees were reported to have been dispatched to divert water from the hanging water pipes.
Most of Mombasa Road and Uhuru Highway were impacted by water on Monday.
According to KeNHA, the drainage system was built to travel beneath the Expressway before being diverted to the downstream drainage system.
Additional safety measures have been issued to motorists during the rainy season while driving beneath the raised part.
