A Public Private Partnership is an agreement between the public sector and the private sector for the purpose of designing, planning, financing, constructing, and/or operating projects that would traditionally be regarded as falling within the remit of the public sector.

All internship applications are made through the Public Service Commission. For attachment placements, an application is made directly to the Authority through a letter addressed to the Human Resource, with the necessary documents from the university.

A Virtual Weighbridge System (VWS) runs on a High Speed Weighing in Motion (HSWIM) backbone which captures data from the sensors and cameras, classifies the vehicle and thereafter transmits the database for analyses to the Control Center.

The Nairobi Expressway Project is a dual carriageway designed to run along the middle of the Mombasa Road/Uhuru Highway/ Waiyaki Way (A8) starting from Mlolongo all the way to James Gichuru Road Junction. It measures 27.1 kilometers

Road users using toll roads will pay tolls. The tolling system will be both electronic and manual to ensure ease of payment and reduce time taken at the tool plaza
