    aaaaiiii 50kph is too low for such a road.As much as concede that accidents have gone up on this highway…………i think traffic act provide for 110kph for small cars and 80kph for medium and 65kph for trailers…enforce that period.. Anything else is not law and can be challenged. This country is governed by law..a few people cannot wake up one morning and think that they can interprete the law for us.

    I thought the Traffic Police should implement the Traffic Act and not make it. TKK oppurtunities being created? Then don’t call it highway!

    police officers will be fatter actually they will be fighting to be deployed along the highway, 50 kph really? now that is daylight robbery.

    This is ridiculous. Accidents are caused by speeding vehicles that ram into broken down trucks or public transport vehicles stopping at dangerous spots. Police should focus on removing vehicle that are not roadworthy and punishing public and private transport flouting safety rules. Police should also enforce law requiring pedestrians to use  overhead bridges.  Motorways the world over have a minimum speed limit of 80 kmph and maximum of 113 kmph. Infact if you drive below 80 kmph one is pulled over and fined. Speeding is not so much the culprit as disharmony on how the roads should be used and enforcement of traffic laws.

      precisely ! the culprits are the traffic police not being able to do their job and allowing impunity by PSV’s.
      There is lack of discipline by drivers of PSV’s. the route cause  of accidents. careless parking on the road without adequate warning signs.Overlapping at matatu/bus stages affects traffic flow.
      As perepepe said speeding is NOT the culprit it is carelessness and many others.
      Have driven all over the country for last 40 ‘teary’ years and have observed and have plenty more to say of how accidents are caused !

    NOTE: This speed cap only applies until the super highway is officially commissioned.

    50 it too slow for a highway of that kind, I bet even our runners can beat that speed. The best and fair is 80 to 100 coz 50 is for resindential areas

    I bet the road is still under constructions…so do we go by the law  or use what is practical?
    I believe that once its completed ,the legal limits will apply.

    The police want to open a channel that they’ll use to extort money from people!

    This is unrealistic 50km/h. You must be jocking the what was the need of the construction of the super highway? The law stipulates 110km/h for small vehicles.

    This is kind of panic reaction due to the rate of accidents that have taken place.The traffic department ought to be done away with and come with people with fresh ideologies.The big question is why did Michuki tame road carnage under the short spell he was in transport department?the reason behind this is he was serious with whatever he was doing.We need people who can lead by example.

    I was watching Eng Kamau discussing this on telly the other day and he did admit that design of the higway around Pangani could be a problem. I suspect he was talking about the Forest rd, Limuru rd and Parklands rd interchange. There are major design flaws in this particular interchange that need to be addressed ASAP. The Thika turn-off also needs to be looked at to ensure that traffic originating from Gatundu North (Mangu area) is able to join the highway (this seems to be in progress) but that going towards Mangu from beyond Thika (Nyeri side) have no entry point.

    Speed limit of 50K? That may actually cause more accidents. 80 would be a good number.

    This Commandant  Katana  needs to have his head examined.  This is too low and will create gridlock.

     Timely. However consider reviewing 50 KPH speed limit where there are no pedestrian crossings. Once the road is complete express lanes will be high speed lanes in order to carry higher volumes of vehicles per second. Right lane must be used for overtaking only. It is wrong for lorries and slow vehicles to use right side lanes. Keep left unless overtaking is the rule. PSVs will have themselves to blame if they are caught misusing the lanes.

    I don’t agree with The Traffic Commandant Leonard Katana…and he should read this…enforce the rules and the accidents will reduce…This is a motor way not human way…its only that the accidents are happening coz we Kenyans don’t know how to use these modern roads. The slower vehicles hold down the traffic on this
    road. Its very irritating to see a vehicle / ka piki piki and lorries
    moving at a speed as low as 30KPH on lane 4 not to mention last evening I
    saw a bicycle on lane 4. The police and GK vehicles also seem lost on
    this as they are also breaking this basic rule. You also find hand carts being pushed on theseroads. Also I have seen cars
    switching lanes from lane 1 to lane 4 without even checking on vehicles
    coming from behind. Of late I have noted if you are a fast driver, its
    better to use lane 1 as there are fewer vehicles. Really, Kenyans needs
    to be taught on how to use these modern highways and simply follow the laid down rules…don’t implement funny ones…
