Thika Super Highway, Uhuru Highway, Kenyatta Avenue, University Way, Haile Selassie Avenue as well as roads within the Nairobi CBD such as City Hall Way, Harambee Avenue and adjacent streets will today Thursday 24th June 2021 experience traffic interruptions from 8am to 1pm to pave way for the Safari Rally flag off at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
Speaking to the press, Nairobi Area Traffic Commandant Joshua Omukata, said the flag off will take place at the KICC grounds.
The vehicles will then exit the CBD via Parliament Road, Haile Selasie Avenue, Uhuru Highway, Wangari Mathai Road and then head to Kasarani via Thika Road.
From Kasarani, the Safari Rally vehicles will head back to Thika Road and pass through Muthaiga as they head to Naivasha.
The Nairobi Area traffic boss noted that there will be no closure of the said roads, there however will be traffic disruptions in the city and on the said roads.
The flag off of the Safari rally comes at a time when the construction of the Mombasa Road- Westlands express way is already causing traffic jams within the city. Motorists have been advised to plan well and avoid the roads earmarked for the event.
The WRC event runs from the 24th of June, through to the 27th of June 2021.
