A signboard in Mandarin, the most generally spoken form of Chinese, can be seen on the renowned Nairobi Expressway as you travel down Wayaki Way in Westlands.

Concerned motorists had raised issues about the signboard’s purpose and its usage of Mandarin, a language that most drivers would not be able to understand when the Ksh87.9 billion road is completed in the end of April 2022.

Moja Expressway says that the signboard’s primary function is to advise road users of any potential hazards, such as road accidents or lane closures.

The insider also hinted that preparations were in place to enable advertising for other enterprises to take use of the prominent sites, alluding to the future concept of the signboard.

They stated that the Chinese contractors were using Mandarin for testing purposes, but that once the highway was up, the signboard information will be in English.

In addition, the insider said, signboards will be strategically placed along the road at various points.

For the next 27 years, the Moja expressway firm, a subsidiary of the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), will operate and maintain the road for the government under a PPP-based scheme.

It’s a 27-kilometer route that uses the existing medians of Mombasa Road, Uhuru Highway, and Waiyaki Way to construct a four-lane and six-lane dual carriageway.

As a result of the expressway’s construction, traffic will be de-congested and the connectivity between various counties will be strengthened.
