The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) has issued a traffic advisory following flooding leading to overtopping at the Kwa Kadzengo swamp area near Mtwapa in Kilifi County.
According to KeNHA, the road is presently impassable having been completely submerged by the ongoing heavy rains in the area and the country at large.
“The Authority advises motorists to exercise restraint and caution as they wait for the water levels to recede before traffic returns to normalcy. The area is currently under construction,” read a statement on Friday evening.
“The new road will be 1.50m higher than the existing one with four 1200mm twin culverts to be installed to balance water levels on both sides of the road. This will have addressed the perennial overtopping of these areas.”
