The Kenya Highway Authority, KENHA in a notice on Tuesday said that the busy Muthaiga–Kiambu road in Nairobi will be closed on Saturday, February 12, from 6am until Tuesday of February 15, to facilitate the construction of a footbridge at Muthaiga golf club.

The authority advised commuters to use alternative routes as provided to reach their respective destinations.

In December, the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) invited members of the public to submit oral or written statements as the government moved closer to the long-awaited dualisation of Kiambu Road.

The government plans to dualise the road from the Muthaiga interchange to Ndumberi via Kiambu town, a distance of 15 kilometres. It will then connect to the Ruiru-Uplands and Githunguri-Kimende roads.

The move is necessitated by the rapid real-estate development along the corridor, which has resulted in traffic congestion on the narrow single-lane road during rush hour, costing the economy millions in lost work hours.

KENHA had in 2019 hired two firms to prepare designs and a feasibility study for a dual-carriage road to run along with the affluent Muthaiga and Runda estates as well as Karura Forest.

Some residents recommended that the road ought to have non-motorised transport facilities, given that it mainly runs through residential areas.

The dualisation of the road is part of a wider plan to improve transport infrastructure in the northern reaches of Nairobi, with the government also planning to upgrade the Northern Bypass to a dual-carriageway.
