0

Nairobi City County Works Department has embarked on rigorous facelift and renovation of various pavements and Non-Motorized Transport busy sections in the Central Business district.

According to Engineer Geoffrey Tirop, the Nairobi County Chief Officer for works, some of the areas targeted include; Moi Avenue, Harambee Avenue, Haille Sellassie, Tom Mboya (upper section), Kenyatta Avenue, City Hall way, Mama ngina street, Muindi Mbingu, Standard street and Wabera street.

“The contract ends at the end of June 2024 (this is the contract period). In more developed countries sidewalks and NMT’s are a requirement as they provide many benefits,  including safety, mobility, and healthier communities,” he said

In addition to reducing walking along roadway crashes, Tirop noted that sidewalks reduce pedestrian crashes and also improve and enhance pedestrian movements in Nairobi.

“There is also heavy pedestrian traffic in the Central Business District,” explained Engineer Tirop
