Have you ever been in traffic, that you wish perhaps it’s time you moved closer to your work place? Traffic nowadays has been crazy, especially along Mombasa road.

Motorists go to the extend of sleeping in their own cars. Now, I imagine you live in Athi River, and work in Town CBD. Assuming you boarded a matatu at 6 PM from town going home (Athi-River) but somehow end up getting home at around midnight. It’s unheard of right? That’s just the reality of some citizens. After a long day at work, all you need is a good rest, not getting stuck in traffic.

On Tuesday, the Kenya National Highways Authority urged Mombasa road commuters to use the railway as part of efforts to ease congestion on the stretch that is under construction.

KeNHA went ahead to announce that the JKIA-Mlolongo section will be restored on September 10th , Westlands-James Gichuru on 30th and the Haileselassie-University of Nairobi roundabout on October 15th.

The authority stated that, works on the elevated section of the road is now 73 per cent done. Once the multibillion- shilling project is done, it will take between 15 to 20 minutes to cover the 27 km stretch which begins from African Inland Church, Mlolongo, all the way to James Gichuru on Waiyaki way.

This will bring relief to road users.
