Tendering for four more Thika Road footbridges is slated for next month as the government moves to curb pedestrian fatalities along the busy superhighway.

The number of pedestrian fatalities caused by either human errors or careless driving have been on the rise since completion of the road in 2012.

Transport Secretary James Macharia told Parliament last week that the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) is set to initiate tendering for four additional footbridges along the road.

“The Kenya National Highways Authority is currently preparing tender documents for four-footbridges which will be tendered by June 2016,” he said.
