Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company has announced a plan to shut down water supply pipeline along Mombasa road.
NWSC Managing Director Nahashon Muguna says the shutdown will start at 6am on Saturday to Sunday 11 at 6am attributing the shutdown to the ongoing construction of the JKIA-Westlands Expressway near Bellevue to Southern bypass.
“This will facilitate the interconnection of the new and old pipelines and enable the release of the road median to the Expressway road contractor,” Muguna said.
Muguna says Estates along Mombasa road from City Stadium including the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Standard Guage Railway, Athi River Export Processing Zone, Coca Cola, Mukuru, Imara Daima, North Airport road and Embakasi.
Other areas include South B and South estates including Mater Hospital and estates along Jogoo road including Makdara, Hamza and the whole of Industrial area.
“We appeal for public indulgence as we work towards restoring the supply. We further urge members of public to use the available water sparingly,”Muguna said.
