Eng. Wainaina was educated at Iowa State University and University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. He thereafter had a 30 years long career at North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and rose to become State Geotechnical Engineer at NCDOT and Assistant State Engineering Geologist at NCDOT.

Engineer Njoroge Wainaina has headed a staff of more than 100 engineers, geologists, technicians, and administrative personnel to design over 150 bridges and 100 lane-miles of roadways per year. Eng. Wainaina was part of Interstate 40 (I-40) repair team after a rockslide that caused the highway closure and a detour of 80 miles that was costing the world economy $1,000,000 per day. I-40 from California to North Carolina is the 3rd longest Interstate in U.S after I-90 and I-80. He has today developed the draft plan of the 150 km Kenya University Project – Institution Town Road and transportation plan.

The 90,000 town residents and 30,000 students who the KUP – Institution Town Road and Transportation Plan will service over the years will be happy that the plan foundation was initiated by an engineer who has been part of complex road and transportation planning. They will be happy the plan considered: soil types, weather, terrain, hills, safety during construction and maintenance, safety during road usage, road usage weight capacity, water, power supply system, wild animals and other factors that have to be considered during road construction, usage and maintenance.

Eng. Wainaina experience in evaluation of premature pavement failures in Ecuador, South America on why 400 Kilometers of roadways experienced pavement failures within four years after they were opened to traffic will make the Institution Town 150 km plan avoid such failures. This will in turn ensure that the property developer’s capital put inside the town achieves a higher return.

At one point Mombasa – Nairobi highway will become a dual carriage express highway. Having Eng. Wainaina vast experience will make the plan take into consideration the inter-relation of the highway and Institution Town settlement.

Eng. Wainaina has done his part in progressing the U.S paved roads that is today estimated as 2 million km road network made of the Interstate highways, Avenues, Streets and Property driveways. This network meets daily needs of 320 million population as it services residential, commercial, institution, Government and other property. The network is today used by the more than 100 million vehicles each day.

Through Kenya University Project, a Instsitution Town development project by Diaspora Kenyans for Kenya, Eng. Wainaina has started advancing the Kenya paved roads network that is currently stated to be less than 20,000 km. He looks forward to achieving a good road network for Kenyans that contributes to cost effective movement of people, goods and services; and gives Kenyans the right of clean air as paved roads reduce dust pollution.
