Road Expansion works in Upper Hill are in high gear as the China Road and Bridge Corporation embarks on the construction of a bridge across the Haile Selassie decent.

A spot check by Uzalendo News has revealed that the contractor is currently working on concrete pillars that will support the bridge.

The projectwill also include the upgrade of feeder roads and pedestrian lanes located along the road.

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority said the project will ease traffic congestion in the area by providing a lasting alternative to junctions.

CRBC is currently working on two major projects; the Nairobi Expressway and the Nairobi Western bypass.

The China based construction firm has successfully completed other projects such as the A109 highway, the Standard Gauge Railway, the Southern and Eastern Bypasses.
