The state has revised the design of an expressway from JKIA to Westlands that is planned to pass through the capital, Nairobi. This is after a public outcry that the project mess up parts of famous recreational park, Uhuru park.
The four-lane dual carriageway will cost Sh61 billion and will run over 27km from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport western part of the city. This move is expected to ease traffic congestion from the main airport to western sides of town.
The project is funded by a Chinese firm which is expected to recoup its investment with road tolls.
