The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has announced the temporary closure of a section of Mombasa Road for seven days, starting next week.

The affected area is the Mombasa-bound carriageway at the lmaara Mall (Tuff Steel) Junction along Mombasa Road (A8) Highway.

The closure is scheduled to begin on Monday, December 25, 2023, at 9:00 p.m. and will continue until Sunday, December 31, 2023, at 4:00 a.m.

During this period, two lanes will be closed to facilitate excavation and the installation of a cross culvert along the affected section.

Traffic diversion will be implemented near the Tegla Loroupe Road.

In a statement, KeNHA emphasized that the closure aims to minimize disruption and will only affect two out of the four lanes.

Motorists are advised to use the two Mombasa-bound lanes during this period and exercise caution in the construction zone.
