Earlier this week, residents along Kangundo Road woke up to rumbling noises from wide load trucks, loaded with earthmovers and bulldozers. This resulted in nerve wrecking traffic jams, but for the better.
The Kenya Urban Roads Authority has embarked on an expansion of Kangundo Road, in an effort to ease traffic from Mombasa road, by providing a link to the Eastern Bypass.
“The project has been long overdue and we are confident that finally these painful traffic jams will finally go away” Said one Maina, a resident from Njiru Estate
Being a popular destination to land owners, the expansion of the link road will obviously see a shoot up in land prices, as this has been the main reason why land is cheap in the area.
“People have been complaining about how underdeveloped this area is because of the narrow road but at least now we will be able to convince them to invest in this part of town” Mugure, Real estate agent
Other major developments to be witnessed along the road include Nairobi’s Wakulima Market, City County Fire Station
