Mombasa Rd. (A109).

You can see how drought has ravaged our country. All grass is brown in colour. I hope it rains soon.

I think that middle part of the road should be utilised by adding more lanes. Though I hear there are plans to increase the lanes from 6 to 8.

They will definitely need more lanes given the rate of increase in the number of vehicles. Though there was talk of introducing special lanes for buses or tramlines in between the highway. (personally, i'd prefer the monorail project to pass here).

They should make this dual go all the way to ongata rongai and also all the way to Karen shopping center to avoid the snarl up at the end of the dual
Hmm...Im just thinking how the interchange for the two dual carriageways (at Brookhouse) would look like if that happened. Maybe one day...

You have not seen the worst yet. This craze began in the late nineties when the likes of Pasaris came up with the idea of lighting the city and in return the city allowed them to erect advertising board. There are areas where each street light has an advertising boards, albeit smaller than the ones here: it's an eyesore.

wow! the marketing market in kenya is just getting crazier, look at al those billboards!!! are those billboards really that effective? they could atleast had big spaces btn them coz its easy to miss some of them

Which one would you prefer

A. Clear lightposts, dead lights , dark street

B. Eyesore, working lights, lit street.

The choice is yours

The answer, given the limited choices, is A: I would prefer working lights without the eyesore but that would be asking too much from our local governments - at least for now.

Kenguy,
Is the Naivasha-Gilgil-Lanet (arguably the worst road stretch in Kenya) fixed yet? Looks like Lanet-Nakuru is now a lovely road, and it's now a three-lane highway! Lovely.
