Lanes on Thika Superhighway closed

At the beginning of the month, the contractor closed off the inner lanes of the superhighway leaving only the to outer lanes in the area in operation.

The closure caused a snarl up that stretched far back past the Garden City Mall.

Kura is in the process of building an overpass that will link the newly revamped Outer Ring Road to the superhighway to ease traffic at the GSU headquarters junction.

For the duration of the construction project, Thika-bound traffic from Outer Ring has been diverted to use the Survey of Kenya underpass while airport-bound traffic from CBD has been diverted to connect with Outer Ring from the Garden City overpass.
