The traffic snarl up on Outering Road started at around 7 am in the morning and has persisted beyond 2 hours.
Motorists are still stuck on the road after a cargo lorry lost its container while negotiating the Lunga Lunga round about. The road at that point is totally blocked.
Outering Road is a 13 kilometers road that stretches from All Sopps on Thika Road to where the Taj Mall building used to stand on Airport North Road.
This incident created a chain of events that led to traffic spilling over to other roads such as Airport North Road, Kangundo road and Manyanja road making the situation unmanageable.
It is now 20 minutes to 10 am and the traffic has not let up in some parts of the road.
Motorists are advised to use alternative routes.
