The project is expected to help thousands of Kenyans in the capital to cross from Wakulima Market, Industrial Area through Railway Station.

According to the Daily Nation, Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA) will fund the 700-metre bridge. 

Construction works are expected to be completed within the next two years. 

“We are almost through with feasibility studies. This paves the way for the award of the Sh10 billion tender by the Japanese government. It will be a loan,” Daniel Muchiri, Kura acting director in charge of planning and urban roads development was quoted by Daily Nation

Muchiri further said the contractor who will be given the tender will also be responsible for "the construction of a market where the current Wakulima market will be relocated to."

Part of the flyover will run over the Wakulima market. There are however ongoing negotiations on the land that will be used to build a new market. 

“We are currently in talks with Railway Pension Scheme to give us the land where we will relocate them,” Muchiri said.
