Motorists using the Nairobi-Thika highway should expect a smoother ride soon after works on removal of speed bumps and rumble strips on the key road began over the weekend.

The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) finally succumbed to pressure from road users and Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko to remove the bumps, which motorists say have made driving on the highway a tedious affair.

The roads agency began removing the bumps on some sections as part of the plan to completely eradicate all such speed breakers on the road.

While responding to a concerned resident on Twitter last week, Mr Sonko had promised to ensure the speed bumps and rumble strips were removed to ease congestion.
