    President Kibaki Friday launched the construction of the Nairobi Southern by-pass in ongoing efforts to reduce traffic congestion in the city.


    The 30-kilometre road estimated to cost Sh17 billion ($204 Million) is set to become the third bypass to be built in Nairobi as way of diverting vehicles from the city centre. Others are the Northern and Eastern bypasses, which are already completed.

    "When this road is completed, vehicles destined to western parts of Kenya or coast region will have an alternative route away from the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD)," said President Kibaki during the launch.


    The dual carriageway will branch off from Mombasa road at Airtel Headquarters pass on the edge of the Nairobi National park, Langata's Southern Estate, Ngong Road, Dagoretti, Gitara and Thogoto in Kiambu County where it will then join the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway.

    All through this route, there will be no roundabouts; phenomena on our roads largely blamed for the incessant traffic jams. But there will be at least 6 interchanges. This will be sections where vehicles can change direction or lanes without necessarily stopping on-coming traffic as is common with roundabouts.

    The design also caters for other road users with a provision for at least 5 foot bridges of a regular distance from one another as well as street lights for pedestrians and bikers users at night. The road will run in a width of about 60 metres although the actual area of tarmac could be narrower.

    Mr Bett said the road will be purely for use by vehicles travelling beyond Nairobi.

    He said all link roads branching off the road will be closed so that "there is no impediment to the flow of traffic."

    Mi nadhani hii ndio ingetangulia projects zingine, but it is never too late
    Kitu kilicho kua kina bore zaidi Nairobi ni kule kukosa a ring road
    Mara nyingi ni vizuri miji kama Nairobu kua na alternative road
    ili wanao safiri na kupita tu, bila kusimama, wasilete jam.
    Hongera sana Kibaki, this is serious investments... Infrastructures are there to stay!
