Road Drainage Systems Failure

 Well designed highway drains help keep surface water off the highway hence making it safe for motorists and other road users. Good drainage helps to maximise the lifespan of the road too as standing water can create pot holes. Lack of proper roadside drains, ponds, lagoons, and soakaways turn roads into rivers during rainy seasons. This year 2015 Nairobi has experienced flooding on the roads even the Thika Superhighway touted to the best example of other highways. Kenya civil engineers need to think of a redesign to the roads again. Cities in Euorope has more rain than Nairobi, yet roads there do not flood.
 

County Government of Nairobi & Ministry of Transport has converted 6 Roundabouts along Uhuru Highway. Evans Kidero and suspended CS Michael Kamau announced the drastic changes in a bid to make traffic flow after long time outcry by motorists. The governor and Eng. Kamau put together a task force comprising members from the Ministry, County Government, Kenya Urban Roads Authority as well as other consultants. This committee was tasked with finding quick wins as well as long-term solutions to the traffic menace.                                                                                Lusaka Roundabout entry to Langatta road has been blocked by concrete drums (now christened Kidero drums).

MAK DISSAPOINTMENT BECAUSE OF ENERGY REGULATORY COMMISSION LATEST REVIEW

We at Motorists Association of Kenya least expected an increase in prices this month. During the last review Energy Regulatory Authority promised three favourable reviews. This was after MAK complaint that prices were not coming down fast as they should. We register our disappointment as body representing our registered members. The calculations are not convincing to us especially where petrol rises with a significant margin of a whooping Kes 4.75 against diesel Kes 0.68 a litre. What informed the lopsided calculation with fuel type disparities and seemingly discrepancies. It is our sincere hope that the new prices were informed by market forces as we would dread any other reasons.

 

President Kenyatta has demanded action on  175 public officials who include Cabinet secretaries, governors and senators, step aside with immediate effect.
The are contained in a confidential report handed over to National Assembly

The officials named will be expected to step aside to pave the way for an investigation based on the confidential report the The report was handed to President by the chief executive officer of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Mr Halakhe Waqo.

There has been a national outcry over the integrity issues for those that hold high office.

 

Motorists using major highways in Kenya would from March start paying for using public hitherto open for public use. This according to Infrastructure Principal Secretary John Mosonik                         The funds collected would be used for road maintenance which currently is funded by road maintenance levy, fuel levy and road levy. According to reliable sources Toll roads proposal will involve private-public partnerships.                                                                                        Mombasa-Nairobi-Nakuru highway, Thika Road and Southern by-pass public Roads will be the first to turned into private Roads.                                                                                                    In the past Motorists Association of Kenya had opposed the system arguing that the systems has been phased out in Europe for being unpopular with its citizens. This time MAK club which charges members Kes 500 to join and 3 000 Annual subscription is not happy on behalf its registered members.                                                                                                                           Toll Stations were replaced by the more effective fuel levy in 1990s.
