County Government directs Matatus and other PSVs using Accra Lane, Banda Street and Gedi Lane in Nairobi to relocate away from the streets to pave way for a Single lane.
This is part of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s plans to improve the conditions of roads within Nairobi City, a project aimed at beautifying the streets of Nairobi.
The 24 million shilling project, in partnership with UN Habitat, will convert the three streets into one-lane roads, easing congestion and movement in the busy business environment.
“After the successful trial on Luthuli Avenue, the Governor has approved three more streets for immediate upgrade,” Roads and Transport Minister Hitan Majevdia said.
The city roads upgrade will bring about Bicycle lanes, pedestrian walkways, street lights, road markings and specific lanes for people living with disabilities.
