List of most dangerous roads in Nairobi

Beware of these killer roads in Nairobi.

According to the report released by the Authority, Outering Road leads with 39 deaths since January, followed by Waiyaki Way, which recorded 22 deaths within five months.

Mombasa Road claimed 21 lives during the period under review and the Eastern and Northern bypasses with nine deaths each. Thika Road is sixth with nine deaths.

The Southern bypass, on the other hand, is the road on which SK Macharia’s son John, lost his life, few days after DP Ruto’s son narrowly survived after a fatal crash.

Residents and businessmen living along the new look Outering Road in Nairobi are known to have a difficult time making it across the eight lane highway. The road has limited crossing points, leading to a spike in accidents. So far 1,348 people have lost their lives countrywide since the year began, NTSA says.

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority delayed setting up footbridges along Outering Road, forcing pedestrians to jump over the highway barricades and risking their lives. Pedestrians also put their lives at risk by crossing the road wherever they wish because there are no designated crossing places.

In another cadre, Nairobi County still leads with the deaths on the road at 186, followed by Kiambu County with 114, Nakuru with 92 and Machakos with 69.

Other high risk roads include: Kangundo Road, Jogoo Road and the Gilgil-Nakuru, Marigat-Loruk roads.
