Bypass Juctions

The 98km Nairobi Bypass Project is no doubt the largest road project after Thika Road. In fact if size was a factor here, the bypass project is indeed the longest. It has torn through various demographics meandering around the city looking for the suitable path. Its through this meandering that in some places the project went through court cases but emerged the winner, further tearing through private land and finally as you read this more that 50% is done and in use.
