KeNHA says drainage system on Expressway to be fixed

Following public outcry, the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has promised to address the poor state of drainage systems along the Nairobi Expressway.

Motorists raised their concerns Monday evening after a heavy downpour. Videos shared online showed a drainpipe loosely hanging from a carriageway, on a section along the Mombasa road, discharging rainwater on cars below.

In a statement released on Monday, April 18, KeNHA stated that the contractor was yet to complete the drainage system as they work round the clock ahead of the commissioning of the 27-kilometer road by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

It was revealed that more workers had been deployed to redirect water from the hanging water pipes even as the city continues to experience moderate rains.

Motorists have been urged to exercise caution while plying the affected areas as they work on resolving the issue.
