Kenya: Fast Lane Sought in Kiambu

The Nairobi County Assembly Transport Committee yesterday asked Munga Holdings to withdraw a case over the construction of an acceleration lane to ease traffic.

Munga owns the Ridgeways Mall on Kiambu road.

The assembly passed a motion requiring Munga to construct the lane.

In a report tabled in the assembly yesterday, committee chairman Diana Kapeen said lack of the lane outside Nakumatt Ridgeways causes traffic on Kiambu road.

Kapeen tabled a report in response to a petition by Karuara ward representative Kamau Thuo and the residents.

"For the sake of eliminating traffic snarl up on Kiambu road -Munga holdings and their agents should withdraw their case and seek authority from Kenha and implement recommendations in the traffic study carried out in 2012 by Livman Associates," she said.

Kapeen said Livman recommended that only one gate entry and exit should remain along Kiambu road, and should be located 150m from the current gate.
