Motorists with vehicles of less than four axles will be charged Sh300 to use the planned Nairobi expressway or a pro-rata charge of Sh11.25 per kilometer for those exiting along the way. The 18.5-kilometer road project will start at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and terminate at James Gichuru, along Waiyaki Way, in Westlands. To use the entire corridor from Mlolongo through Nairobi up to James Gichuru, you will pay Sh300 for a small vehicle, if you exit anywhere in between you will pay pro-rata,'' Mundinia said. He said they arrived at the per kilometer charges after reviewing a 2015 study that showed motorists were willing to pay Sh6 per kilometer while planning for Nairobi-Mau Summit and Nairobi-Mombasa Expressway for small vehicles. He said the state is expected to pay Sh8 billion to relocate water, power line and more than 15 ICT providers along the way.
