Hailed as one of the biggest achievements in his tenure, President Uhuru Kenyatta has officially commissioned the Nairobi Expressway.

The Expressway had been closed yesternight after the end of its trial period.

This, therefore, means the 27km highway, that connects Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in the east of the city to the Nairobi-Nakuru highway in the west is open for public use.

During the launching ceremony, Uhuru said the project is a fundamental overhaul of how government can use the PPP model to bridge infrastructure deficits.

"Hongera to all who made this masterpiece a success and for the government and the people of Kenya for having confidence in our infrastructure projects," he said.

"Our gratitude goes to CRBC for choosing to invest and demonstrate their confidence in our country."

China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) - is the Chinese firm that financed and constructed the highway.
