Facts: The Nairobi Expressway Project

The Nairobi Expressway project begins from Mlolongo and runs through the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and Nairobi’s Central Business District to James Gichuru junction on Waiyaki way. 

The road is a 27.1 Km stretch costing over US $560 million. It is the first major project in Kenya to be undertaken through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model. 

Nairobi Expressway currently has a four-lane and six-lane section within the existing median of Mombasa Road, Uhuru Highway, and Waiyaki Way. It also includes ten interchanges. 

The section between the Eastern and Southern bypasses is a six-lane freeway. Further on, the stretch from the Southern Bypass to James Gichuru junction narrows to a  four-lane dual-carriageway. 

The elevated highway begins near Ole Sereni Hotel and runs through the CBD along Uhuru highway, terminating at the James Gichuru junction. Haile Selassie Road, Kenyatta Avenue, and University Way are below the elevated road. 

Nairobi Expressway significantly reduces drive time on Mombasa road, especially during rush hours, from two hours to about 10 to 15 minutes. The speed limit is set at 80km/h/ with relevant authorities promising to rein in overspeeding and careless driving aggressively.
