Mto wa Mawe River burst its banks after heavy rains on Thursday, rendering part of Mombasa Road impassable.
The massive water quantity also destroyed the perimeter wall of Green Park Estate and flooded several houses.
“The water is still rising. Our emergency assessment is that the highway will be cut off until tomorrow. The road is now closed,” Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua said in a Facebook post.
Mutua said more than 50 people were rescued from the estate by the county emergency team.
“Majority of them are the elderly, house helps and children from some of the flooded houses. Our teams will be on the ground tonight to respond to any situations that arise. Let me repeat, Mombasa Highway is CLOSED.”
The Governor urged those travelling to Machakos and Mombasa to either postpone their trips or use Kangundo-Koma Road to Machakos, then Konza Road to Malili or Machakos road to Kyumvi.
“We expect more rivers to break their banks so I urge all Kenyans to be careful and not risk crossing areas where water is above a bridge or road.”
The Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA) on Thursday issued an alert warning motorists and pedestrians to exercise caution and not attempt to cross the bridge.
“Our engineers are on standby to monitor any eventualities that may occur as a result of the overtopping, motorists and pedestrians should consider Kangundo road” said Charles Njogu, Assistant Director Corporate Communication, KENHA.
