Major roads in Nairobi closed for construction

Motorists using the Sarit Centre roundabout in Westlands, Nairobi will have to use an alternative route after the area was partly closed for 21 days due to ongoing road works.

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) urged motorists to use alternative routes until August 12 when the project will be completed.

The closure is aimed at improving the link between from Waiyaki way to Limuru through Westlands.

Vehicles headed towards the Oval/ Sarit Centre on the left side from Waiyaki Way shall navigate the roundabout on the diversion provided on the right hand side of the roundabout.

They will then take a right turn at Lower Kabete Road and proceed to Sarit Centre or Westgate Mall and proceed ahead.

Waiyaki Way-bound traffic on the left side of the Oval shall stick to the left and navigate the roundabout on the left hand side and through to Waiyaki Way.
