Monday, June 7, 2021 – Kenyans will have to dig deeper into their pockets to access the Rironi-Nakuru-Mau summit dual carriageway once it is completed.

This was revealed by the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development, James Macharia.

In a statement, Macharia noted that the tolling of the road project would pave the way to a more connected and competitive infrastructure.

The proposed toll tariff is Ksh6 per kilometre translating to Ksh 1,398 for motorists who use the entire stretch.

The distance from Rironi to Nakuru Town totals to about 130 kilometres – meaning those who use the stretch will pay about Ksh800 for a one-way drive. 

”The road shortens the journey by one hour but those who will not want to pay to ply the road will have to use other alternative routes though they will have to travel for three more hours,” Macharia noted.

The highway will improve connectivity between Central/Eastern Kenya and Rift Valley/Western Kenya region and reduce congestion on the Nothern corridor.

The 233-kilometre highway will cost Ksh160 billion of private capital with construction expected to start in September 2021 in a contract awarded to a French consortium.

The project will involve widening the existing Rironi-Mai Mahiu-Naivasha road into a 7-metre carriageway with two-metre shoulders on both sides, construction of a 4-kilometre elevated highway through Nakuru town, and building and improvement of interchanges along the highway.

The expansion of the road aims at stimulating economic activity sustainably, creating employment opportunities, providing a high level of services (ambulatory services and towing), reducing road accidents, reducing travel times and vehicle operating costs.

The project will improve transport connections for people and goods between the Eastern and Western parts of Kenya and neighbouring countries.

  1. Asshole!

    Who asked you for the loan? What’s the point of borrowing to loot at the same time and foolishly have you families construct the useless road to 7m then charge 6 shilling per kilometre. Why do you zombies apply that on Thicker highway?

    Why should you be abusing the Rift Valley and Western Kenyan native with toll charges on a road to be expanded: which is long overdue. These region have new roads and the speed limits on these roads are 80km/h and not 110km/h are those driving on mt kenya region. Mean the zombies traffic police and NTSA are exploiting natives of these region on traffic speed limits charges only. Now, these fool with his fraudster boss borrow debt from the asshole French to expand the road as it should be them come up with a scheme of robbing natives of these region with a toll charges of 6 shilling. Go apply these shit on mt kenya roads and collect the looted debts that are in your mt kenya contractors: whom are you guy fraudster doing this jobs.

    Monkey head, make sure all reads are marked have night reflector to aid drivers that drive at night and during heavy rains before rushing to open them before they are completed to be road worthy. As it stands now, empty skull, 99% of the kenyan road have un-road worthy bumps to no codes, are not marked and have no night reflectors, no road signs and neither have shoulders. So what time of a CS is this clown!

    All native of Rift Valley and Western part of kenya should not pay a shilling to this open robbery with violence by these useless thief with it’s affinity of stealing in the name of a debts for expansion of a road.

    Revolution!

    Why should you be abusing the Rift Valley and Western Kenyan natives with toll charges on a road to be expanded and their right: which is long overdue. These region have new roads and the speed limits on these roads are 80km/h and not 110km/h as those driving on mt kenya region. Meanwhile, the zombies traffic police and NTSA are exploiting natives of these region on traffic speed limits charges everyday on a 80km/h speed limit instead of 110km/h. Now, these fool with his fraudster boss borrow debt from the asshole French to expand the road as it should be them come up with a scheme of robbing natives of these region with a toll charges of 6 shilling.

As it stands now, empty skull, 99% of the kenyan road have un-road worthy bumps to no codes of practise, are not marked and have no night reflectors, no road signs and neither have shoulders. So what booby of a CS is this clown!

    All native of Rift Valley and Western part of kenya should not pay a shilling to this open robbery with violence by these useless thief with it’s affinity of stealing in the name of a debts for expansion of a road.
