New Kenyatta University Main Campus Gate (PHOTOS)
Just a few years after they were forced to ‘push back’ their gate for the expansion of Thika Road, Kenyatta University has brought it down. Construction work is ongoing at the main campus gate, with all human and motor traffic using the other gates to access the vast campus. What was previously thought to be some small construction work to improve security days after the Garissa University attack is turning out to be a multi-million shilling project.
Details are scanty, but it is believed that new lanes will be introduced to cater for the increasing number of cyclers. The gate project extends well inside the campus, with main road extending several hundred metres, being widened.
For the first time, KU has deviated from the ‘gate style’ that is replicated in most of its campuses, and today we can reveal how the new structure will look.
