Lunar Park Nairobi: Armed policemen have demolished multi-million property at Railways Club’s Lunar Park Nairobi The property was brought down to pave way for the construction of Nairobi Expressway. The park is an area that attracts gaming activities for families and children.

The demolition was done as business areas protested. “We are legitimate business owners who have been here for the last 10 years paying our rents to the Kenya Railways Retirement Benefit Scheme without fail and we demand for a clear plan for our eviction and compensation before we leave the premises,” said Railways Lunar Park Traders Association Chairman Clifford Ngwala.

A related report on the demolition said that the demolition was done after the expiry of an eight-hour ejection notice. This notice was issued by the Kenya Railways Staff Retirement Benefits Scheme (KRSRBS) on Tuesday.

“We hereby issue you with an 8 hours’ notice to vacate the premises failure to which you will be forcefully ejected without further reference to you,” said the notice by KRSRBS said.

The construction of Kenya’s first double-decker expressway will cost an estimated Sh. 59 billion. It will be financed under the public-private partnership (PPP) model. China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) will build the 27.1km road linking the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

The project launched in October last year and will take three years to complete, is expected to reduce heavy traffic on Mombasa Road which usually starts from Mlolongo to the city centre.

The expressway will involve a four-lane and six-lane dual carriageway within the existing median of Mombasa Road/Uhuru Highway/Waiyaki Way and 10 interchanges.
