Construction firm China Wu Yi has secured a KES16.4bn ($161.7M) contract from the Kenya National Highway Authority (KeNHA) for the expansion of the James Gichuru-Mai Mahi road in Kenya.


The company will be responsible for the extension of a 25km stretch of Waiyaki Way, starting from the James Gichuru Road junction to the Mai Mahiu turn-off on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

The scope of the work will include the construction of 13 bridges at interchange locations, 21 pedestrian overpasses, five overpasses, and the installation of street lighting.

The project forms part of a World Bank-financed road expansion project, which involves the conversion of 45.2km of road between Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and Rironi into a superhighway.

The expansion project is anticipated to take 36 months to complete.
