Environment Tribunal petitioned to overturn Nema's okay for Sh62bn expressway

June 15, 2020

A spirited campaign by the Green Belt Movement, Wangari Maathai Foundation and other conservation and rights organisations recently forced the Kenya National Highways Authority to roll back the push for the expressway.

The organisations were assured that the design of the road had been changed not affect Uhuru Park.

Despite the assurance, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment Study Report still avers that there will be significant impacts on Uhuru Park and other ecologically sensitive areas around the Chiromo, Nyayo Stadium and Railways Golf Club interchanges.
