This ropeway Idea is not bad. I think if it was implemented in the CBD and we relocate all matatus to outlying areas, it will really free up much needed space on our roads. Imagine all eastlands bound matatus terminate at City Stadium and then passengers board the continously moving ropeway from there all the way to Railways Terminus and beyond along Haile Selassie until Uhuru Highway, At the Railway Terminus in the CBD, you can switch to another one which takes you up Moi Avenue to around University of Nairobi roundabount joining Uhuru Highway. Since it is mounted on pylons, now imagine another one starting from Nyayo Stadium coming along Uhuru Highway all the way to Westlands routed along the median of the two carriageways.

The above alone can permanently get rid of all matatus and taxis in the CBD which can then be pedestrianised and free up more parking spots for those driving in.

Tafakari hayo

A ropeway is good for Mt Kenya not Nairobi.
Nairobi needs a subway connecting same area these guys have highlighted.
Connect the most populated area of city with subway. Airport connection is secondary. How many Kenyans go to the Airport
Time to build infrastructure that connects the people not far away from the people.
I agree this would work better in Mt. Kenya. That $ 600 mn should have gone into constructing the first two subway lines.

The roads with the most traffic should be prioritised not the Airport. The airport connection can be done later.

Im saying that cause easing traffic along major roads will also help ease traffic for those headed into the city from the airport.

A ropeway is a Waste of money. All big cities in the world have an Addis type of cable car.
Boston its subway in 1897 today it serves 4 Million people a smaller population than Nairobi. Those ropeway charts look enticing but Nairobi needs is 120 years late to move to modern age of city transport

Even though Nairobi isn’t that hilly. I think it’s prudent this project is brought back into the lime light. Trapos is already looking to expand The Likoni Cable cars to serve more locations across the coast.


If implemented in Nairobi the system could work seamlessly across the city like this Mexican project.

With Likoni soon to start. Maybe this project should be brought back to the table?
