The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has announced a series of planned closures on various sections of the Uhuru Highway over the weekend.

The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has announced a series of planned closures on various sections of the Uhuru Highway over the coming weekend.

These closures are necessary to facilitate ongoing infrastructure projects aimed at improving traffic flow and pedestrian safety.

The most significant closure will affect Mombasa-bound lanes between Hotel Boulevard and the University of Nairobi roundabout.

This section will be completely closed from Thursday 23:59 to Saturday 23:59.

This extended closure is to allow for the construction of a pedestrian tunnel connecting the University of Nairobi’s main campus and the Chiromo campus.

Motorists traveling to Mombasa during this period are advised to use alternative routes such as Harry Thuku Road, University Way, Prof. Wangari Mathai Road and Kipande Road.

KeNHA urges drivers approaching the affected section to exercise caution and strictly follow road signs and directions provided by police and traffic marshals on site.

The first closure will be from 10pm on Thursday to 5am on Friday, between the Haile Selassie Avenue roundabout and Kenyatta Avenue. This closure is intended to facilitate the installation of service ducts.

A second night closure on the Nakuru-bound lanes will take place from 10pm on Friday to 5am on Saturday, between the Harambee Avenue exit and the Haile Selassie Roundabout.

This closure, similar to the first, is intended for the installation of service channels.

The final overnight lane closure on Nakuru is scheduled for Saturday from 10pm to 5am on Sunday, between Bunyala Roundabout and Haile Selassie Avenue Roundabout.

As with the previous caps, this is to facilitate the installation of the service pipe.

KeNHA advises all motorists to plan their journeys accordingly and use alternative routes during the closure period.

They also encourage drivers to follow the designated traffic management plan and cooperate with the police and traffic marshals to keep traffic flowing smoothly.
