NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 3 – Construction of the Nairobi southern bypass is nearing completion with the road accessible from the junction of Mombasa road interchange at Ole Sereni all the way to Kabete-Limuru road at Kikuyu town.

The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) says the contractor is finalising erecting wall barriers along the bypass adjacent to Kibera.
The wall barriers are intended to protect and prevent nearby residents from crossing the highway.

“Works in most sections of the bypass is completed with the contractor just winding up,” a statement from KeNHA said.

Other final touches undertaken in finalising the bypass is landscaping to beautify the entire section before it can be launched formally – although it is already in use.

The superhighway has three main interchanges at Mombasa, Lang’ata and Ngong Roads to ensure smooth and safe passage of traffic with fly-overs (partial interchanges) at Dagoretti and Thogoto roads being included.

KeNHA says the bypass was designed to ease congestion on several adjacent roads such as Lang’ata road and Ngong road by drawing away traffic.
