Road in Nairobi CBD to remain closed for 2 weeks

Governor Sonko issues notice

Luthuli Avenue during peak hours

The county government of Nairobi on Friday issued a notice outlining that Luthuli Avenue will remain closed for two weeks.

The notice published in the local dailies explained that the administration had begun regeneration efforts to help with decongesting the city.

According to the notice, the government intends to convert the busy down-town road into a one-way street.

"This is an initiative that will be done in phases.

"The choice of the street was informed by a study done by JICA which highlighted Luthuli Avenue as one of the roads that can be made vibrant to improve mobility, safety and accessibility to all," the notice read in part.

The notice from County Secretary Pauline Kahiga further urged residents of the city to cooperate during the period.

"This is therefore to notify members of the public of the intended partial closure of the road as from Saturday 18th May 2019 to Thursday 30th May 2019 in order to pave way for the civil works.

"Nairobi City County Government requests full cooperation from members of the public and reiterates that any inconvenience caused is regrettable," the notice outlined.
