Yes there are plans to create a flyover in a section of the highway, but that's solely in Nairobi and only 12 km that is being expanded as of now.

Quote:
Even before the opening of the Sh27-billion Thika Superhighway, the government announced its ambitious plan to decongest Mombasa Road via an elevated highway running on top of the now existing Mombasa Road-Uhuru Highway-Waiyaki Way

The artistic impressions of the proposed highway classified as A109, were unveiled last month and like in the case of Thika Road, major roundabouts on Mombasa Road will be a thing of the past. This is the latest plan by government through Kenya National Highway Authority, to improve roads infrastructure.

After the completion the project will ease the flow of traffic from Likoni Road to the James Gichuru Interchange. The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) Director General Meshack Kidenda said the construction is scheduled to begin in 2013, a development that is estimated to last not more than two years. “The section we are working on is 12 kilometers between St James Hospital (near the Airtel Headquarters) and James Gichuru (directly opposite Kabete Barracks), building an elevated road or flyover. We will replace all the roundabouts as well,” he said.

In addition, the design will also include a bus rapid transit lane to streamline the flow of public service vehicles on the highway. “Bus rapid transit is a concept where you use high capacity buses that carry around 200 people in a dedicated lane so they have the right of way. They are programmed and timed to boost their reliability,” he said in an interview. The project, funded by the government and the World Bank, is part of Highway authority’s larger plan to improve the thoroughfare from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Rironi.

Really all of A109 should be expanded to a dual carriageway. I'm sure there are plans for it though it hasn't been announced publicly when this will happen.

Nairobi

Uhuru Highway set for a complete makeover
http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/U...z/-/index.html

IN SUMMARY:
  • The section between Nyayo National Stadium and the Museum Hill interchange would have an elevated road with two lanes on each side.
  • The stretch would also have additional special lanes to accommodate a special bus rapid transport system (BRT) that will run from JKIA to Kikuyu.
  • The actual design of the road project jointly funded by the government and the World Bank will be known soon when submission of bids closes on January 31.

Langata Road is 2KM and is being widened into a dual-carriageway from KWS to Bomas of Kenya junction...

It's not pretty but some current construction images...

Always love the updates. Kenya is a beautiful country, I assume one of the most beautiful in the world. I also just love seeing development in Africa period, the world needs Africa, building up infrastructure and completing projects is always a step in the right direction.

A road under construction in Juba mid last year. The first 340km section of the Juba-Eldoret road, from Juba to Nadapal at the Kenya-South Sudan border, will cost Sh36.4 billion, while the second 590km stretch from Nadapal to Eldoret will cost about Sh51.3 billion. NATION

Construction of the Sh90 billion road linking Eldoret and South Sudans capital Juba is expected to begin early next year, giving a boost to trade between the two countries.

The 930km Juba- Eldoret Road corridor is expected to significantly reduce the cost of transporting cargo from the port of Mombasa to the landlocked country.


Speaking on Tuesday during a donors consultative meeting, Finance Permanent Secretary Joseph Kinyua said construction of the corridor could begin as early as next year when funds are secured.

We are going to mobilise the international community to put together the massive resources needed for this project, said Mr Kinyua.

Single carriage

Roads minister Franklin Bett said the first 340km section from Juba to Nadapal at the Kenya-South Sudan border will cost Sh36.4 billion at todays market rate.

The second 590km stretch from Nadapal to Eldoret is estimated to cost Sh51.3 billion
. Mr Bett said the two governments have commissioned three consultants who are carrying out designs of the single carriage road.

As soon as they are done in May, as is scheculed, we will use the report to secure funds from the international donor community, said the minister.

The World Bank country director in South Sudan, Ms Bella Bird, said the road would be instrumental in encouraging a multi-faceted development of the landlocked country that has little by way of road infrastructure.

This corridor is expected to enhance economic growth, especially agriculture, of the landlocked nation, said Ms Bird.

The road is part of the larger East African Community corridor projects and has been marked as a high priority trans-national project.

At its completion, it is estimated that it will handle up to 90 per cent of cargo traffic on the northern corridor.

Mr Bett said together with the LAPPSET corridor, the Eldoret-Juba road will greatly ease transport cost, which currently stands at Sh368 per kilometre on the northern corridor.

It costs more to transport a 20-foot container from Mombasa to Kampala (600 miles) than from China to Mombasa (6,000 miles) emphasised the minister.

He also noted that the road will serve to revive stalled projects like fishing in the Turkana region, which has stalled due to poor infrastructure.

It is also timely as the region is an upcoming economic hub of the country, having been selected for construction of a resort city under the Vision 2030 blueprint, he observed.

Before the road construction work is commissioned, the two countries have their work cut out in trying to ensure that a favourable regulatory framework is in place to enable free flow of goods into the region.

According to South Sudan Roads minister Gier Chuang Aluong, the nation lacks a strong legal framework to regulate, among others, the axle load permissible, customs procedures and the transit documentation required.

That road is going to be massive for South Sudan. Less so for Kenya, but still good to have inter-country links to boost trade.

South Sudan needs all the help it can get, so it's good to see Kenya is willing to help its neighbour. More co-operation like this is needed badly across Africa. It's all very well one country building roads and expressways, but if they're not replicated across the border, then quite often it's a waste of time.
