The Kenya National Highways Authority has said the stretch between Haile Selassie Avenue and the UoN Roundabout will be opened on October 15.
Ag director-general David Muchilwa said the overall progress currently stands at 64.8 per cent with notable progress of construction of the operation.
The sections of roads where traffic congestion could still be experienced, include areas currently under intervention such as GM, where a new footbridge is being installed.
The other section is the Bunyala-Haile Selassie Roundabout-University Way where hoisting of box girders is still ongoing.

To this end, various interventions have been put in place to ease traffic. they include opening up various completed sections of the Nairobi expressway to traffic to give way for works on the existing highway. These include the section along Imara Daima to GM, and the section at Airtel.
Further, the authority has seen the opening up of lanes that were previously closed at Syokimau and Mlolongo.
Eng. Muchilwa went on, adding that the crew has ensured continuous watering of the construction sites to reduce dust as well as widening the angles at diversion points such as at Gateway Mall.
