The Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company Ltd (NCWSC) on Tuesday announced that a number of estates along Waiyaki Way will go without water for a day due to construction of the Nairobi Expressway.

Through a tweet, NCWSC stated that the shutdown will facilitate interconnection of relocated pipeline to the old pipeline at the junction of Waiyaki Way and James Gichuru Road starting 6am on Wednesday, 30 June 2021 to Thursday, 1 July 2021 at 6am.

“This will enable release of the road section between Nairobi School and the junction of Waiyaki Way Road and James Gichuru Road to the Expressway contractor,” read the tweet.

The areas to be affected include:

  • Estates along Waiyaki Way, Rhapta Road, Parklands Road and Church Road
  • Westlands, Highridge and Parklands areas
  • Nairobi School, MP Shah Hospital
  • Muguga Green Estate, Sarit Centre and the surrounding estates

Residents of the listed areas have been urged to use water sparingly until normal services resume.
