Traffic-busting Nairobi expressway carries hopes

By OTIATO OPALI in Nairobi, Kenya | China Daily | Updated: 2021-04-08 00:00

Nairobi, Kenya's capital city, is known for its perennial traffic jams. However, this might not be the case for long.

Under a Build-Operate-Transfer contract between the China Road and Bridge Corporation, or CRBC, and the Kenya National Highways Authority, construction of a 27.1-kilometer expressway has begun. The route starts in the town of Mlolongo and ends at the junction of James Gichuru Road and Waiyaki Way in the city's west end.

Ren Wenfeng, CRBC's general manager of the expressway project, said the $600 million project is in line with the aim of Kenya's Vision 2030 to create a globally competitive and prosperous country.
