The announcement comes after Moja Expressway, the company tasked with managing and running the road, opened the registration process for motorists who plan to use it on April 6. 

Motorists will have the option of paying using cash, using a Manual Toll Card (MTC) or through an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC).

Those using the MTC will be charged based on the distance they have covered. On the other hand, the ETC requires users to install an On-Board Unit which will have points that will be deducted every time the vehicle is on the road.

The Nairobi Expressway is expected to reduce travel time in Nairobi and its environs, especially for those who will use the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) service.

“All of you who have run are the first to use the new Expressway which we built to ease traffic jams in Nairobi as we better our city in the sun. 

Motorists will pay up to Sh350 to use the road.

The Sh88 billion expressway has 11 interchanges at Mlolongo, Standard Gauge Railway, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Eastern Bypass, Southern Bypass, Capital Centre, Haile Selassie Avenue, Museum Hill, Westlands, and James Gichuru Road.

It is a class A four-lane dual carriageway with a design speed of 80km per hour; with 18.2km on the ground and 8.9km elevated.
