Chiromo Lane to be closed off to the public until next year
Nairobi county government will partially close Chiromo lane from June 15 to January 15, 2020, for the construction of the vehicular underground tunnel for the multi-billion Global Trade Center. In a public notice issued in Wednesday's dailies, Nairobi’s county secretary and head of county public service Pauline Kahiga said the closure will facilitate completion of civil works on the underground tunnel across the lane that is being undertaken by AVIC international. “During the said period, motorists are advised to follow traffic signs and guidance of traffic marshals on the site during the civil works,” Kahiga said. The trade centre situated in Westlands began its construction in July 2015 and launched on September 18 last year. During a site visit, contractors told the Star that AVIC international will repair the lane that starts from Waiyaki way passing through Westlands road, Muthithi road, Mogotio road to Ojijo road.
