Kenyans to Pay more to use Expressway as state Revises toll Fees

Drivers utilizing the Nairobi Expressway will need to spend more money to access the road following the government’s adjustments to the toll fees.

In a notification published in the Special Gazette on December 19, 2023, Kipchumba Murkomen, the Transport CS, has given the green light to the updated fees.

“In Exercise of the powers conferred by section 4B(3) of the Public Roads Tolls Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Roads and Transport approves the toll rates for the Nairobi Expressway as set out in the Schedule hereto,” it reads.

He mentioned that the shift in price was because of the weakening Shilling in comparison to the US Dollar.

Under the updated fees, the minimum charge for using the Expressway is now Sh170, an increase from the previous fee of Sh120.

The maximum fee for using the road will now reach Sh500 for saloon cars, an increase from the previous charge of Sh360.
