Kenyans will be able to use the Nairobi Expressway starting next Saturday-Uhuru

The Nairobi expressway will be open from May 14, according to President Uhuru Kenyatta. Uhuru said the freeway will be open for trial on Sunday during the City Marathon. “We will allow Kenyans to utilize the highway before we formally unveil it,” he stated.

“The highway will be operational starting Saturday so that we can continue to improve Nairobi and Kenya as a nation.” The road is projected to minimize travel time in Nairobi and the surrounding areas, particularly for people who will use the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) service.

Once they arrive at the service facilities, drivers can select between using the Manual Toll Collection (MTC) or the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC). Skaters, pedestrians, two and three-wheeled vehicles (tuk tuks), wheelbarrows, and bicycles are all prohibited from using the 27-kilometer path, in addition to photography.

The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) asked motorists to make plans to access the roadway before it opens to the public on April 17. Drivers would be charged up to Sh350 to use the road. The government increased toll charges for the yet-to-be-opened expressway by 16 percent last week, meaning vehicles would have to pay more to use it.
