In a notice issued late Sunday evening, the authority relayed that officials have been deployed to assess the progress of a major fault that is shifting.

"Following the earth tremors experienced in several parts of the country, KeNHA advises that a fault has been cited along the Naivasha - Mai Mahiu Road, at Fay Amario, about 8km from Naivasha, Mai Mahiu bound.

"KeNHA engineers are on site monitoring any resultant damages to the road surface," the notice read in part.

Exercise Caution and Restraint

The Authority advised private vehicle motorists to use the main Kamandura - Limuru - Kinungi - Naivasha Highway, adding that traffic police will be at hand to assist with the diversion.

"Heavy commercial vehicles operators are urged to excercise caution and restraint, and to follow traffic flow directions that are being provided by the Traffic Police Department.

"Particularly, we advise all motorists to observe lane discipline and avoid overlapping, which can result in traffic flow disruptions," the alert cautioned.

The Authority further noted that updates would be issued over any new developments.

In March 2018, a section of the Narok-Mai Mahiu road sunk rendering the road impassible.

At the time, the rift in the road was attributed to volcanic activity and KeNHA refilled the section and restored operations to the road.
