Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia has said that the Nairobi Expressway is 64 percent complete.
The CS spoke during an inspection tour of the project on Wednesday.
He said the road is expected to be complete in early 2022.
“State House Chief of Staff and Head of the PDU Mr Nzioka Waita, Prof Mutahi Ngunyi, and I inspected road projects that will decongest the Nairobi Metropolitan area and facilitate seamless movement on the Northern Corridor,” he said.
Macharia said the projects support the Big Four Agenda and Vision 2030.
He said the Government is also expanding the Athi River-Machakos turn-off section of Mombasa Road, a critical link that intersects with the Great North Road (Cape Town – Cairo) at Athi River.
The CS added that the Ministry is also reviewing the expansion of the James Gichuru Junction – Rironi highway into a 6-lane dual carriageway.
He said the main carriageway is 97% complete.
“We also plan to implement the Rironi-Nakuru-Mau Summit Road expansion project, which will be the largest PPP road project in Africa” he said.
