A section of Ngong Road will be closed on Sunday, July 23 to facilitate the erection of a footbridge, the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) has announced.
In a public notice issued on Friday, KURA said the road will be closed from 9 am to 6 pm for the works.
“The Kenya Urban Roads Authority wishes to notify the general public that a section of Ngong Road at the Kenyatta National Hospital stage will be closed off on Sunday to allow for the erection of the steel deck footbridge crossing,” reads the notice by Kura’s DG Silas Kinoti.
To ensure smooth traffic flow during the closure, motorists heading to Nairobi CBD will be diverted to Valley Road, while those heading to Mombasa Road will be rerouted to Mbagathi Way.
KURA has urged both motorists and pedestrians to exercise caution when approaching the construction area and strictly follow the diversions indicated by traffic signs and traffic marshals on site.
“We request the public to be patient as we work to enhance pedestrian safety and urban mobility,” the Authority said in its notice.
