Hope the forumers in Nakuru will keep us posted on the proposed interchanges on A104.
Could you have been talking about this Kenguy?

Maybe the government should focus on removing roundabouts in smaller towns. Before moving on to Nairobi.
Smaller towns are perfect places to utilize roundabouts than big cities with population over million..you don't need to install traffic light, etc..

One word: consistent and dependable power supply grid is must for traffic light system to work..without this, just utilize roundabouts in small towns where one just have to yield and go.

A solar powered control box with a back up battery would be sufficient.

Same could be said with intersections. Instead of streetlights in these smaller towns a simple Yellow Blinking and Red blinking light will be sufficient for yielding and stopping.

But one thing for sure, transnational highway such as A109, should not have to go through towns..they need to be designed to have exits such Naivasha for efficient use. Places such as eldoret is such place they to reroute that road to go around the town and have exits to the town centre for those who need to go to the town..

Love to see that happen with A109. Bypass all major towns or be elevated if it has to go through town. And oh ya, no traffic lights all the way.

In other news, Nakuru Town is very clean now that hawkers were removed from the CBD. The pedestrian walkways are much better and people no longer walk on the roads. I'll try to get photos when I pass by again.

nakuru has fault lines making it a high risk earth quake region, designing a safe tall building in such a region always makes it more expensive, developers therefore shy away

Los Angeles and Tokyo have been built on even more earthquake prone regions. They are still some of the worlds largest cities.

As Kenya progresses we'll see tall buildings that are safe enough in the rift valley region. The earthquakes experienced aren't even as intense.

Anyway people shouldn't think that its impossible.
