Thika Road to see toll stations, bridges erected

04 February 2016, 19:12

Nairobi - It is expected that changes will be made to Thika Super Highway to increase safety and improve the management of the road, the government has announced.

The Daily Nation reports that the Kenya National Highways Authority KeNHA Maintenance Manager Njuguna Gatitu, announced the introduction of tolling services on the highway is aimed at improving maintenance and operation services.

Speaking in his office, Gatitu stated that the advisor is currently carrying out a feasibility study and the tolling service is to begin in the near future.

“This will reduce road accidents drastically along the highway which has in recent past been marred with motorists’ death due to unscrupulous driving,” he stated.

In another report on Capital News, Gatitu said the tolling service would be carried out under the public private partnership (PPP) to improve the highway by building of footbridges and installing lighting to improve safety.

He further stated that KeNHA is in the process of sourcing funds to erect priority footbridges on the superhighway before the PPP commences.

Currently there are 18 footbridges on the highway.
