The State has opened a window allowing a Chinese company to adjust the Nairobi Expressway toll charges annually based on inflation in fees that will be paid in dollars.

In a gazette notice published last Thursday, Transport secretary James Macharia said the concessionaire, Moja Expressway, a subsidiary of China Road and Bridge Construction (CRBC), will be at liberty to review the set base toll rates (BRT).

Motorists using the road linking Mlolongo to the Nairobi-Nakuru highway via Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) will pay between Sh100 and Sh1,550, depending on the size of the cars and distance travelled.

The rates are based on the dollar trading at Sh103.79 and will be reviewed based on inflation and the rate of Kenya shilling to the dollar, which currently stands at Sh109.17.

This means that the toll charges are dollar-based and will cushion the Chinese operator from exchange rate losses.

The Chinese firm, which will build and operate the Nairobi Expressway, is expected to earn an estimated Sh106.8 billion profit for the 27 years it will own the double-decker road.

  5. Thanks for the new stuff you have discovered in your text. One thing I would really like to touch upon is that FSBO associations are built as time passes. By launching yourself to owners the first saturday and sunday their FSBO is announced, ahead of the masses get started calling on Friday, you develop a good network. By giving them tools, educational components, free reports, and forms, you become a strong ally. By taking a personal fascination with them and their problem, you create a solid network that, most of the time, pays off once the owners decide to go with a representative they know plus trust – preferably you actually.
