Moja Expressway Company in a statement released on Monday, June 26 announced that the Nairobi Expressway will be temporarily closed on Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2.
Moja Expressway stated that the temporary closure of the expressway will be done to allow for the Nairobi City Marathon, which is to take place on July 2.
“Please note that the Nairobi Expressway will be temporarily closed from Saturday July 1, 2023, at 10 pm to Sunday, July 2, 2023, at 4 pm as we host the 2nd edition of the Nairobi City Marathon,” the notice reads in part.
As such, the company has asked motorists to plan their journeys on the mentioned dates.
“We kindly request all motorists and commuters to plan their journeys accordingly.” The statement further reads.
Nairobi City Marathon was scheduled for May 21 but was later postponed to July 2, due to a clash of dates with another charity race that was set for that same day.
“We were unaware of a different run happening on the same day across the road. In the true spirit of charity and sportsmanship, we are therefore happy to leave the day for them and push ours forward to allow them to meet their planned charity and community objectives,” the statement read.
