The road has began showing signs of ruin which is evident by the potholes which are increasing by the day.
Residents are now up in arms protesting the shoddy job done by the contractor.
Led by Peter Mwai, the residents accuse the contractor of not adhering to the stipulated standards of building tarmac roads set by the government.
The contractor identified as Testimony Enterprise Ltd has been on the spotlight after its directors were charged in court together with Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and his wife Susan Wangari among others in connection with a 588 million shillings road construction scandal.
