Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA), established by the Kenya Roads Acts of 2007, is a state corporation under the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development. Its core mandate is to manage, develop, rehabilitate and maintain all public roads in urban areas.

The Authority is undertaking an ideal project aimed at improving the Argwings Kodhek, Ralph Bunche and Woodlands roads. The project is guided by a strategy dubbed Nairobi Road Rapid Decongestion Programme (NRRDP), which aims at reducing vehicular and non-motorized transport conflicts and junction geometry improvements to enable improved traffic flows in the existing road network within the City of Nairobi. The Programme entails identifying problematic junctions and undertaking simple quick win improvement measures.
The project will mainly target the junctions at Ralph Bunche, Argwings Kodhek, Woodlands and adjoining roads. The scope of works involves improving the junction geometries, construction of additional and filter lanes on the either sides of the existing carriageway, and construction of walkways, drainage facilities on each arm of the junction.
The government of Kenya through the Development Vote is the overall financier while the overall supervision will be conducted by Kenya Urban Roads Authority. The project will attract a total cost of Ksh 185,008,458.00, The twelve months project is expected to end on 6th June 2017.

    There is a black sport on Kitisuru Road. This on the slope on Kitisuru road just off Peponi road &.Kitusuru Junction.
    Vehicles go off the road and roll down the cliff. Something needs to be done soon before we loose lives.

    What kind of decongestion…?! If it’s not dual carriage, nothing much will change.

      Dear Judy, the Road will be expanded and this will enable motorist move swiftly without traffic contestations as it was before. The road corridor will accommodate more cars and enable a swift movement.
