"We apologise for the inconvenience that may be caused as we endeavour to provide an efficient urban road network," Director General Silas Kinoti stated.
On Tuesday, July 28, The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) closed a section of Thika Superhighway at Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS) to erect a footbridge.
The construction of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system will commence in August 2020. The lanes will run from Thika Superhighway through the Central Business District to Kenyatta National Hospital.
Over 100 buses are targetted to use the special lanes after the Chinese firm remodels Thika Superhighway to accommodate modern facilities such as boarding stations and footbridges. The stations will be placed beside the footbridges along the highway.
Each bus is expected to carry a maximum of 160 passengers who will use electronic cards to pay their fare. They will also enjoy free Wi-Fi.A notice issued by KURA on Friday, August 7, 2020, on the partial closure of Thika SuperhighwayFile
