The Kenya National Highway Authority has begun knocking off speed bumps on Thika Superhighway following a push by newly elected Nairobi governor Mike Sonko.
In February, the High Court ordered the removal of bumps and rumble strips on the superhighway, following a petition by Sonko.
Justice George Odunga in his ruling further directed white strips at Survey of Kenya, Homeland and Kenya Breweries areas removed, and pedestrian use footbridges.
Sonko filed the petition in April 2015, challenging the decision by Evans Kidero (former Governor) to restructure county urban roads to ease traffic flow.
In a statement, the Kenya National Highway Authority said it was implementing the standardization of bumps for smooth traffic flow and pedestrians' safety.
"We urge motorists and pedestrians to cooperate with traffic marshals along the maintenance sites to ensure smooth traffic flow."
Sonko last week, while engaging residents in Social Media, promised the speed bumps would be removed with immediate effect.
