Update Project 4. Around Githurai.



Digging the foundations for some pillars for another flyover where one of the bypasses should be built (near where Nakumatt Thika road once stood). If you look closely, you can notice some metal bars sticking out of some concrete next to those excavators. The old EABL buildings at the top of the hill have also been demolished.

So good for Thika road. is anything happening on the Outer Ring Road front. This road has been a nightmare and would love it to have a four to six lane expansion from the airport to Ruaraka.
