Road works in Kenya are an ongoing initiative aimed at improving the country’s infrastructure and transportation network. The government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development, has been investing heavily in road construction, rehabilitation and maintenance.

One of the major road construction projects currently underway in Kenya is the Nairobi Expressway. The project, which is being implemented by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA), involves the construction of a 27.1-kilometre elevated highway from Mlolongo to James Gichuru Road in Nairobi. The aim of the project is to reduce traffic congestion in the city and improve the flow of goods and people.

Other major road construction projects include the construction of the Mombasa-Nairobi expressway, which is a 473-kilometre road connecting Mombasa and Nairobi, and the construction of the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia-Transport (LAPSSET) Corridor. The LAPSSET project involves the construction of a 2,000-kilometre road network connecting Kenya, Ethiopia, and South Sudan.

In addition to these major road construction projects, the government of Kenya is also investing in the rehabilitation and maintenance of existing roads across the country.

This includes the repair and upgrading of major highways such as the Thika Superhighway, the Kisumu-Busia Road, and the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway.

Overall, the road works in Kenya are aimed at improving the country’s transportation infrastructure, promoting economic growth, and enhancing the quality of life for all Kenyans.
