According to Nairobi Water, the disruption will facilitate the interconnection of the new and old water pipelines at the junction of Waiyaky Way Road and James Gichuru Road to enable the release of the road section between Nairobi School and the junction of Waiyaki way Road and James Gichuru Road to the Expressway road contractor.

Areas to be affected include estates along Waiyaki Way, Rhagta Road. Parklands Road and Church Road Westlands, Highridge and Parklands areas.
