Nairobi expressway is a flagship project by the national government of Kenya and the first roads project to be funded through a private public partnership (ppp) model, at a cost of more than Ksh 59 Billion. The project is part of the major Nairobi – Mombasa expressway that will link the Country’s major cities of Nairobi and Mombasa.
The route will also provide a very important connection between the A109 Nairobi to Mombasa route and A104 Nairobi to Malaba route.
This will allow through traffic to use the expressway rather than having to pass through the city’s chronic congestion.

a) A closed foil system with more than 19 interchanges to be built along the route.
b) The road is 27.1 km from Mlolongo to James Gichuru junction in Westlands.
