Southern Bypass


the southern bypass connected to the A104

the southern bypass

the section of the southern bypass that is adjacent to Nairobi National Park is still U/C. The contractor is working fast. The rest of the road is done, its a beautiful road especially the Ngong Forest section.

There is a lot of talk about the Southern Bypass becoming a toll road.

Nice find. Was almost feeling lonely in this thread.

In the past 7 or so years, the road infrastructure in Kenya has quite changed

Nah, no new expressways

But there is good news the Treasury CS (Cabinet Secretary) is aiming for a minimum of 30% of the national budget to be allocated to development.

The 2016/2017 govt budget highlights

  • Total budget around KES. 2 - 2.2 trillion (US$ 20 billion approx.)
  • Development budget allocation target - KES. 809 billion (US$ 8.09 billion) (40.45% of the budget and includes infrastructure, health centre revamps across the nation, water and energy projects)
  • Infrastructure allocation - KES. 316.7 billion (US$ 3.167 billion) (15.83% of the budget. The infrastructure allocation only accounts for roads and rail projects)
  • The LAPSSET project will be receiving KES. 10 billion (US$ 100 million)
  • Mombasa Port expansion and improment projects KES. 5.5 billion (US$ 55 million)
  • The govt is looking to start paving some 3000 km of roads across the country as part of the 10,000 km project.

I should mention there are highway upgrades under construction around major towns and cities outside Nairobi.

A1: Plans for a cloverleaf interchange in Eldoret, North Rift Valley west of Nairobi.




Another interchange U/C on the same road.



There are similar projects in Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru.

Hey can one of the mods change the title from

[EAK] Highways in Kenya

to

[EAK] Kenya | road infrastructure • Barabara za Kenya

Barabara za Kenya simply means roads/highways of Kenya in the Swahili language.

Same thing should also be done for the Tanzanian thread.
