Free at last?

Been a Long while Since my last post but here goes.

The Government has decided that the Roundabouts on the route from JKIA to Gigiri have outlived their usefullness- 7 of them in all from Westlands to Nyayo Stadium, a distance that can take less than ten minutes to cover ends up taking over 30. The first to go should be Nyayo stadium, Cars headed toLangata from the airport are needlessly held up there. I hear they want the Kenyatta Avenue one to remain- that's just creating a bottleneck, clear them all I say.

Funny thing is there was a poll on this development on NTV and surprisingly 23% or so did not think that removing roundabouts will ease congestion. Which Nairobi do these dudes live in? I really wonder.Let's hope that they'll make quick work of it. Next in line should beThika Road which has pointless roundabouts like the one at Githurai-for??


  1. Yes we really need to get rid of those roundabouts, Whenever you talk to visitors from outside they always describe our roundabouts as rollercoaster rides or merry go rounds of doom.
    Kenyans are naturally cynical of any government project

  2. glad to see the roundabout on Thika road are gone!
