The expansion of the road is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The work is being done by Chinese contractor Quinjian International Group (K) Limited and will cost Sh2 billion.

The first phase of the project, which entailed dualing about 2.57km of the road from the Kenya National Library to the junction at the Kilimani Ring Road has been completed.

The 9.8-kilometre road which starts from Dagoretti Corner to Karen Shopping Centre has been under construction since last August.

Phase one of the project has seen the road being fitted with intelligent traffic signals at most junctions, pedestrian walk ways, bus stops for PSV vehicles, U-turns for changing lanes and a wider City Mortuary roundabout with extra lanes to cater for all directions.
