CRBC commended on speedy Western Bypass works

Nairobi western bypass

Works on the Nairobi Western Bypass are at an advanced stage, according to a spot check by Uzalendo News.

The Western bypass has been poised to stir social-economic development in Kiambu, Nairobi, and Nakuru Counties.

This has resulted in an economic bubble in Kiambu County and the rise of new satellites towns along the way.

Currently, the China Road and Bridge Construction has completed eight box culverts and underpasses, three bridges and 3.67KM of Retaining walls.

Transport Ministry officials inspect works on the Western Bypass road.

Construction is still ongoing for additional structures.

After successful completion of inquiries with the Land Commission, Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has built confidence on the contractor to complete the works in time.

Structures situated within the project mandate will be brought down, to pave way for the progress of the state of the art highway.

Other processes such as the movement of KPLC power cables have progressed well with a completion of 90% in Section 1 and 40% in section 2.

The bypass is part of the Nairobi Ring project.

It mainly follows the existing road (Gitaru Road) towards the northeast and then turns to the southeast near Ndenderu town (Limuru Road). The Western Bypass will facilitate faster movement through several towns such as Gitaru, Wangige, Ndenderu and Ruaka.
