The expansion of Outer Ring Road, the road from Taj Overpass on the Eastern Bypass to Allsops on Thika road, a road in disrepair and in need of urgent attention and expansion due to its many potholes and narrow state at the moment. A bus ride from town through Mombasa Road in the early evening upto Nakumatt Embakasi takes 15-20mins then u can take one hour from Nakumatt Embakasi to Fedha, Tassia and Donholm due to the confusion evident on the Road. If one decides to use Jogoo Road to Donholm or Umoja, the traffic starts at Buruburu. The traffic is even worse when it rains with residents reaching home late into the night at 12am. Roads minister Franklin Bett has said that plans are in the Pipeline to revamp this major road Corridor that serves most of Eastlands with traffic joining it from Mombasa Road, Jogoo Road, Juja Road and Thika Road as the major corridors serving it. This plan is surely long overdue. This thread is to highlight the roads current state and its impending expansion.

I am curious about what is happening. For Ngong Road, you hear that funding has been given till the Adams Arcade Roundabout but this one all news is vague. Moreover there was no thread on the road

The design is flawed at the jogoo rd. intersection. Jogoo rd. actually ends at the intersection with outer-ring. Unless they plan on building a new road which would mean they'll have to tear down dozens of houses in Donholm.

Some of the proposed intersections will not make the situation any better.

what a recipe for disaster!
In Abu Dhabi, virtually every road intersection looks like that, and traffic flows nicely.

This is really a matter of imposing good driving habits, and the rule of law.

Expanding (and enforcing) the number of traffic rule violations that carry fines of KSh 100K-500K would be a good start.
