Motorway / freeway

I would consider the Nairobi southern bypass that skirts Wilson Airport and Karen as a motorway. It meets all criteria. Grade separated intersections, dual carriageways. Also the Thika road from where you leave Nairobi until you hit the first pedestrian crossing & the speed humps would meet the criteria. Grade separated and dual carriageways. Thereafter its just a main road. Any objections to changing the table???

Kenya road classification

Kenyan government classes roads into A through E and these roads are numbered accordingly. Below E there are class SPR and then U.

On state maps you will see URA999 and URP999 and R999 and UR999 and G999 road classes as well (where 999 is a placeholder). These are all tiny roads.

Observation on the ground suggests that they will make some attempt to maintain classes A through E but do nothing on the remaining roads, which are just tracks.
