Kenya Government is set to implement their decongestion plans. According to Nairobi county, it will enable vehicle has easy access to leave the town. This will be made possible with the revamping of Luthuli avenue into a one-way route on central business district (CBD).

The aim of the revamp will help vehicle leave the town centre through River Road. Meanwhile, the project is a collaboration between City Hall and UN-Habitat. The collaboration will see the construction of a pedestrian walkway, installation of lights and the painting of road markings at a cost of Sh24 million.


Governor Mike Sonko during the launch said ”It was part of his administration’s vision for vibrant spaces in the CBD. The project will be replicated on other roads within the city centre that are also heavily congested.”

The project was first deem necessary after a feasibility study by United Nations two years ago. During the report, it was observed that Luthuli is one of the most congested streets in the city centre.

According to Governor Sonko, it will help ensure a cleaner and greener environment as noise and air pollution as well as insecurity were some of the challenges.
