Kenya National Highways Authority has issued a travel advisory to motorists plying the Tana River bridge following the rising levels of flood waters.

KeNHA said the heavy rains experienced in the country have heightened the risk of further flooding on the bridge.

According to the Authority, the Seven Forks Dams are nearing their full capacity hence posing more danger.

"Currently, a section of the A3 Road at Mororo has been compromised, with one lane already affected," KeNHA stated.

"As the rains persist and the Dam reaches its limits, the water levels are expected to rise, exacerbating damage to the road infrastructure and posing significant safety hazards to motorists and pedestrians."

KeNHA said its contractors are on-site and are prepared to address any washouts once the floodwaters recede.

"Motorists are urged to exercise vigilance, adhere to safety guidelines, and cooperate with authorities to mitigate the impact of the ongoing flooding," the Authority stated.

"KeNHA remains committed to safeguarding the well-being of all road users and will continue to monitor the situation closely and advise accordingly."
