The Director General of Kenya Urban Roads Authority Engineer Silas Kinoti has advised Kenyans to use roads safely in order to avoid road accidents which in many cases are occasioned by recklessness.
“I’m urging all of us to use the roads for the purpose they are intended for. Especially the roads in Nairobi one of them notably Outering road which despite being well constructed, it’s described as one of the most dangerous roads in Nairobi.
So I’m urging the Nairobians to use the pedestrian crossings and footbridges to avoid being knocked down by motorists.
Engineer Kinoti also advised motorists and other road users to utilise The Eastern Bypass road whose expansion is an ongoing project. We are trying our best to ensure we do proper road marking and signage and this will assist the motorists and pedestrians to use the road safely.
Eng. Kinoti noted that KURA is planning to commission street lighting along Outering road soon and he urged all road users to be careful and observe the road signs.
