Kenha removes bumps on Thika Superhighway to ease traffic
The Kenya National Highways Authority on Saturday began removing bumps to improve traffic flow and safety of pedestrians on the Thika Superhighway.
This comes after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko pledged his commitment to remove all the speed bumps and rumble strips on the Thika Superhighway.
“We urge motorists and pedestrians to cooperate with traffic marshals along the maintenance sites to ensure smooth traffic flow,” the Kenha statement said.
Kenha also began public procurement procedures and allocating resources to remove bumps in Ruaka, Survey and Witeithie.
In February, High Court Judge George Odunga gave the Nairobi City County and Ministry of Transport 60 days to get rid of bumps and rumble strips close to the Kenya Breweries plant and the Survey of Kenya offices. There is no need for the bumps as footbridges are available, the judge said.
The order was issued following a case filed by Sonko in April 2015 challenging Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero’s move to restructure county urban roads in a bid to ease traffic.
