The construction of the 17-kilometre Adams-Ngong road in Nairobi will start this month, according to the director-general of Kenya National Highways Authority, Mr Meshack Kidenda.

He said construction of the All Saints-Adams dual road commenced in December 2012 after securing Sh1.6 billion from the Japanese government.

Haile Selassie Avenue ends at Kenya National Library Service and not at the roundabout with Uhuru Highway. Same thing with Kenyatta Avenue. It ends at NSSF near Integrity centre. The road to community from NSSF is where Ngong Road starts...

Although I wonder how community will look if that road is expanded. Won't it lack space on the sides of the road for pedestrians and services or it will end up looking like valley road.

I don't write the state of Kenya roads, Kenyans do. My comments was based on pictures posted here and a ridiculous post attributed to @Muntali. U guys should first begin, by sizing up ur roads with that of ur neighbours in Tanzania and perhaps Ethiopia, before making ridiculous statements.

This chap got some nerve.... Whats there to compare anything with? Envy perhaps. Face it Tanzania simply has nothing worth comparing too. It's an infrastructural, technological, sophistication backwater. You better drop your attitude and learn something. Hell grab a few villagers and send them up north for some lessons

First off, u not really in any position to teach anything to anyone. Pictures the say, tell a thousand words. Most of the pictures of kenya roads on here, reflects abject conditions at best. I didn't post them. If u had better, u did have posted them by now.


In future, before making such erroneous claims, I did advice backing them up with stuff on ground to show.

Chao!

You have become a road expert by watching ssc photos so now you compare us with countries that dont post anything negative to safeguard their standing and reputation?
