Road users should expect traffic jams as parts of Thika Superhighway are set to remain closed for a period running up to two months.

The section at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS) will remain closed until April, 13 as the construction of the footbridge commences.

In a notice, Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) said that the outer lanes will be partially closed to allow for the construction of the median columns of the bridge.

KeNHA awarded the tender to Interways Works Limited and Fourways Construction Limited last March for the construction of four bridges at Survey of Kenya, Garden Estate Junction, Witeithie, and Mang’u areas.

The bridges will cost the taxpayer a whopping Sh820 million.

Interways Works Limited is building the Witeithie and Mang’u footbridges at a cost of Sh430 million while Fourway Construction Limited is constructing the Survey of Kenya and Garden City footbridges for Sh390 million.

The works were supposed to end in June 2020.
