The Kenya National Highways Authority (Kenha) has announced the temporary closure of a section of Nairobi’s Lang’ata Road on Saturday February 24, 2024, and Sunday, February 25, 2024. for scheduled maintenance works.

In a notice, Kenha said the road will be closed between the T-Mall roundabout and the Madaraka Roundabout from 6am to 8pm and will affect the city-bound section of the service lane.

Commenting on the closure, Kenha Director General Eng. Kung’u Ndung’u urged motorists to exercise caution and obey signs when using the route.

“The Kenya National Highways Authority (Kenha) wishes to inform the public that a section of Langata Road along the service lane (Nyayo Stadium bound lane) between T-Mall roundabout and Madaraka roundabout will be closed,” said Ndung’u.

The authority advised motorists heading towards Madaraka Roundabout from Raila Odinga Way (Mbagathi Way), Mai Mahiu Road and Lang’ata Road to take the Ole Sangale link or turn at T-Mall Roundabout and proceed to the U-turn just after the Wilson Airport exit and take the fly-over to Madaraka.

In December 2023, the authority which is an autonomous road agency mandated to manage, develop, rehabilitate and maintain national roads temporarily closed five roundabouts along the Uhuru Highway.

The roundabouts – Nyayo Stadium, Bunyala, Haile Selassie Avenue, Kenyatta Avenue, and University Way – were closed from December 28, until January 1, 2024.

The closure was to facilitate essential road maintenance works along the said stretches.
