I'm sure the residents of Uthiru,Kangemi,Loresho all the way to Westlands also consider Waiyaki way which is their route a "major" which is also worthy of such infrastructure.Four major lines running parallel to the existing roads that feed the City Centre.ngong road,Mombasa road,jogoo road and. Thika road.
I would think not plus the way they have avoided doing a simple tunnel on the roads in construction currently due to cost, I don't think they would be up for a subway. But in all seriousness, Nairobi's population is small.3-4 million does not warrant a subway, just proper planning which has lacked through the years.Can Nairobi's Topography be able to support a subway system????
A subway is not just built in 'a world class city' or in a city in a rich country, it's built where it's needed - like Cairo is way poorer than Chicago by they need a subway there more than in Chicago and that's why Cairo has one and Chicago doesn't.Come off it, Nairobi is NOT a "world class" city. In SSA there is no such city outside of South Africa.
If my "metro" you mean "subway"...
With Kenyas very low GDP per capita it would be crazy to have a metro. Even much larger cities in much richer countries dont have a metro system!
Kuala Lumpar, Bogota, Lima, Chicago etc etc
I believe that Nairobi will be one of the first with a subway. Along with Lagos and Luanda. But this wont happen this decade.
I would have confronted his argument, but better yet i had to show him the plans. Speak for yourself there people in nairobi aint dumb ask five people in the street today what a subway is and they will tell ya.A subway is not just built in 'a world class city' or in a city in a rich country, it's built where it's needed - like Cairo is way poorer than Chicago by they need a subway there more than in Chicago and that's why Cairo has one and Chicago doesn't.
Pss - the funny thing up there is where the dude, instead of focusing on the argument at hand, tries to bring in the usual dick measuring contests we are used to from our neighbors south without putting in mind that in Nairobi, the subway is the current talk while in his city, people still don't know what a subway is. :lol:
Sure there it is.^^Interesting, Adm.Adama, can I to see the source (website or link) of this map?
