Gov’t To Enhance Safety Measures To Tame Speeding On Expressway

The government plans to increase safety measures along the Nairobi Expressway in an effort to reduce the number of accidents that have been on the rise.

This comes after a tragic accident involving several cars occurred at the Mlolongo toll station exit on Saturday night.

A motorist who was allegedly speeding crashed into the toll booth, killing one person and injuring several others.

On Sunday, Government Spokesperson Col. Cyrus Oguna noted on Twitter that the crashes are largely the result of ignorance of the installed speed limits.

He warned drivers to stick to the 80km/h speed limit posted at all times.

“Highway crashes on our roads, including the expressway have been on the rise. The crashes are attributed largely to drivers ignoring speed limits,” wrote Oguna.

“Motorists using the Expressway are urged to adhere to the recommended speed limits to avoid chances of a crash like the Mlolongo one.”

Oguna also stated that motorists should avoid using the affected station because it is temporarily closed.
