The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) on Thursday, August 17 announced a temporary closure of Kyang’ombe Slip Road along Mombasa Road from Thursday 17th August to Friday 25th August 2023.
In a press statement, KeNHA explained that the directive was issued to allow for the construction of additional two lanes comprising a deceleration lane into Kyang’ombe Slip Road and a tailback storage lane for traffic destined for the Eastern Bypass.
KenHA advised motorists headed to the ICD to proceed straight along Mombasa Road and exit at Laboratory and Allied into ICD Road.
At the same time, the government agency urged motorists to exercise caution and cooperate with police and traffic marshals for better management of traffic as they approach the section.
The road expansion work is part of the government initiative to ensure smooth traffic flow in the city. Normal traffic will be restored immediately after completion.
