Road Construction

Kenya Power begun relocating power lines on September 24, 2020 as the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) announced the commencement of the construction of the Nairobi Expressway.

“When executing projects of this magnitude, some of the customers within the estates along the Expressway corridor will experience interruptions in power supply. However, the Company is planning to minimize power interruptions by leveraging the Live Line Maintenance technology which relocate most of the lines without switching off supply,” Kenya Power’s Managing Director & CEO, Bernard Ngugi stated.
