Nairobi roundabouts re-opened

14 April 2015, 17:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Lusaka and Bunyala roundabouts have been re-opened for three days to reduce traffic congestion in Nairobi, Governor Evans Kidero has said.

Kidero has been under pressure to re-open the roundabouts closed because of the unending traffic jams in the city occasioned by the closure of the same roundabouts last week.

There have been huge traffic jams in the city in the last few days and even leaders have come out to complain of the traffic menace with Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko leading a chorus of protests to have the roads re-opened.

Kidero said Tuesday that the two will be opened afresh to allow the County Government finish other areas of roads it feels will help ease traffic flow.

He also announced that starting 10 days time, the roundabouts would be completely removed from the roads.

" All roundabouts to be removed and replaced with signalized junctions. Process to start in 10 days," he said.

He also insisted that the southern bypass would be re-opened Friday to ease traffic congestion and allow trucks to use it instead of moving through town to connect to Waiyaki way.

" Southern by pass will be reopened by Friday without fail to ease traffic, he also said.

Kidero Monday pleaded with city residents to give him time to help ease the traffic problems in the city.

" Please be patient. We are working round the clock to ensure your driving experience is seamless," he had said.

Nairobi loses as much as KES 9 billion in wastage due to traffic monthly.
