“We wish to notify the public that the private earth road currently running parallel to the railway line at the south most end of JKIA will be closed from 10th September 2019.”

In circularization on social media, they say the private road was opened for use following a request by Kenya Railways during the construction of SGR.

Now that the construction is complete, they find no need to have it open anymore.

Thursday last week KAA informed its esteemed customers their plan to construct additional entry and exit lanes at JKIA.

The construction is aimed at improving the customer experience at the airport and ease congestion and queues at toll stations.

“In an effort to improve passenger experience at JKIA, KAA wishes to inform the public that from 7th September 2019 it will be commencing on the construction of additional entry and exit lanes at JKIA”
