Construction of Nairobi’s Southern bypass is complete. The road was supposed to be officially opened this week, but you know how things work around here. The dual carriage road experienced numerous delays especially due to the acquisition of land along the Nairobi National Park.

The bypass starts from Mombasa Road and ends at the Kabete- Limuru Road in Kikuyu town. Certain sections were completed many months ago. The project was funded by the Kenyan government and the China Exim bank at a cost of Sh18 billion.

Despite all the challenges and delays, it turned out beautiful. Check out these pictures.

    The aerial view is really impressive compared to the view while driving.KENHA,the City County,KRB and the MInistry of transport and infrastructure need to ensure it’s well maintained including the lighting in addition to building more roads around the country.

      My constant headache with roads in this country is correct marking (both on the roads and also the signage)… that is what causes so many accidents at night…

        Very true,we need proper markings on all roads.

    Problem is residents bordering the bypass between Mombasa road and Lang’ata road have been blocked from accessing the bypass, they can only use the old dilapidated bypass. I think they should have constructed a service lane on that stretch.
