Working on the Nairobi Western Bypass are in an advanced stages, where the speedy construction of the highway has been highly praised. The Bypass has been poised to stir social economic development in Kiambu, Nairobi and Nakuru Counties. Currently, the China Road and Bridge Corporation has completed over eight box culverts and underpasses, over three bridges and 3.67 kilometers of retaining wall. Transport Ministry officials inspect works on the Western Bypass road.
According to CS Macharia, 64 per cent of roadworks on the bypass is now complete and the rest will be cleared in the next five months. "I have inspected the road and we are happy with the progress. The contractor, China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), has assured me that in the next five months, the road will be complete," said Macharia. He said the 17 billion shilling link road, which starts at Gitaru up to Ruaka is a 16.8 kilometer four lane dual carriageway with seven interchanges, and will play a key role in decongesting Nairobi. The bypass passes through two sub counties of Kabete and Kiambaa.
