Traffic along Thika Super Highway has eased up after Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) opened up the service lanes at the Garden City.

Motorists were on Saturday stuck in traffic for hours over the erection of a footbridge around the area.

Those seeking to use the highway were advised to use exit 8 at Kasarani, follow the Babadogo road and join Thika Road via the Outering road.

Those coming in from Thika were urged to use alternative routes behind Mountain Mall.

A notice by KeNHA shared via social media indicated that the section around Garden City Mall would be closed from 9:30 pm to 4:30 am for five consecutive days beginning Friday, August 21, 2020 until Tuesday 25, 2020.
