New Nairobi Expressway Toll Charges (2024)

The Nairobi Expressway is a major infrastructure project in Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi. It is an elevated highway that aims to reduce traffic congestion and improve transportation efficiency in the city. The Kenyan government initiated the project to address growing traffic problems and improve connectivity within Nairobi and its surrounding areas.

The Nairobi Expressway is the only road in Nairobi that requires payment to use. The Expressway stretches for approximately 27 kilometres, starting from Mlolongo, near the JKIA airport, and ending at the James Gichuru Junction on Waiyaki Way, which is a major road connecting the city centre to the western suburbs of Nairobi.

Motorists who want a smooth ride must obtain a toll card to use the chargeable toll road. The toll card can be obtained in person at the Nairobi Expressway Service Centre in the Cabanas area of the Nairobi-Mombasa highway. The offices are located on Mombasa Road, next to Ramtons.

Alternatively, one can apply for Nairobi Expressway toll cards online from the comfort of their office or home. The company that issues the toll cards is Moja Expressway, a subsidiary of China Road and Bridge Corporation, the same company that built the Nairobi Expressway.

New Nairobi Expressway Toll Fees (2024)

The government of Kenya has increased the charges for using the Nairobi Expressway from the current range of Ksh 100 to Ksh 310 to a new range of Ksh 170 to Ksh 500 across all the stations along the Mlolongo-Westlands route.

In the new rates, motorists entering the Expressway on Mlolongo and exiting at the SGR station and the Eastern Bypass will be required to pay Ksh 250 up from the current Ksh 100, while those exiting at the Southern Bypass will pay Ksh 330 up from Ksh 210. On the same route, vehicles exiting at Capital Hill and Haile Selassie stations will pay Ksh 410, up from Ksh 210.

Exits at Museum Hill, The Mall, and Nairobi Westland’s terminus will attract Ksh 500, up from Ksh 310. The same rates will also be applicable for motorists travelling through the opposite route from the Nairobi Westlands entry terminus to the Mlolongo exit terminus. The shorter routes from Syokimau to the SGR station and those from SGR and the JKIA stations to the Eastern Bypass will cost motorists Ksh 170, up from Ksh 100.
