The road has been fitted with intelligent traffic signals at most junctions, paedestrian walkways, bus stops for PSV vehicles, U-turns for changing lanes and a wider City Mortuary Roundabout with extra lanes. Ngong Road is yet to be completed, with Phase II running from Dagoretti Corner and Karen junction also under construction. The 3km stretch is also being constructed by World Kaihatsu Kogyo Company Ltd at a cost of Sh2 billion. The project commenced in March 2018 and is expected to take 24 months.
