The Kenya National Highways Authority (KenHA) has announced a 12-hour closure of a section of Lang’ata road scheduled on Sunday.
In a traffic advisory by the road agency on Thursday, the closure was necessitated by the installation of footbridge works which will be located along the service lane between T-Mall Roundabout and Madaraka Roundabout will experience traffic disruptions.
“We wish to notify the public that a section of Langata Road, along the service lane (Nyayo bound lane) between T-Mall Roundabout and Madaraka Roundabout will experience traffic disruptions.
“This follows the planned closure of the road to pave way for the erection of the T-Mall River Footbridge. The installation of the footbridge is to ensure a continuous pedestrian walkway,” read the notice in part.
Motorists to be affected are those using Raila Odinga highway – formerly Mbagathi way and Mai Mahiu road.
The road maintenance agency noted that traffic police would be deployed on the road to help motorists manoeuver their way.
KENHA says the closure would guarantee the safety of motorists and pedestrians who are likely to get hurt during the installation.
