A section of Uhuru Highway from Haile Selassie to Bunyala Roundabout on Mombasa Road will be closed for three days.

In a statement on Thursday, October 19, the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) said the closure is to allow maintenance work on the busy highway.

The section of the road will be closed from Thursday, October 19 to Saturday, October 21.

Motorists have been asked to follow traffic signs as well as directions from traffic marshals and police.

"Motorists heading towards Mombasa Road are advised to exit at Haile Selassie roundabout, and share the Nairobi Bound carriageway with the Nairobi Bound traffic and rejoin Mombasa Bound carriageway at Bunyala roundabout," KeNHA stated.
