Roads in Kenya

The A109 road is the main road link between the Kenyan cities of Nairobi and Mombasa. It is also known as The Mombasa road. For the majority of the distance, the road runs adjacent to the Nairobi-Mombasa main line, itself a branch of the Uganda Railway. It is also regarded as one of the most dangerous roads in the country due to the many hundreds of road deaths that have occurred in the last few years.
