The construction of the Ngong Road-Naivasha road interchange is expected to begin soon.

This comes after The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) announced it signed a Sh3.2 billion concessional loan for the project on Monday. 

KURA signed the concessional loan with a Spanish company known as Centunion which will design and construct the said interchange.

Centunion is the same company that won the contract and constructed the T-Mall overpass along Langata Road and several footbridges along the same road, Raila Odinga Way formerly known as Mbagathi Way and at the Nyayo Stadium roundabout.

"KURA has today signed a Sh3.2 billion concessional loan with Centunion of Spain for the design and construction of Ngong Road-Naivasha Road interchange," KURA announced.

Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen and PS-Roads, Joseph Mbugua witnessed the signing of the contract Transcom House, Nairobi.

According to KeNHA Director-General Peter Mundinia, the project will be implemented within 36 months.

"The project is being implemented under Engineering Procurement and Construction/Turnkey Contract framework and was signed between KeNHA and the contractor, Ms Centunion Espanol de CoordinationTecnica Y Financiera. S.A of Spain at a contract sum of €23,250,000 and with timely completion of 36 months," Mundinia said.

The interchange is expected to ease the traffic jam at that section of Ngong Road/Naivasha Road because it will allow for the free flow of vehicles in all directions.
