In this Oct. 10, 2012 photo, a pedestrian crosses a bridge over a new 50-kilometer (30-mile) highway leading north of the capital of Nairobi in Kenya. The $300 million road was built by three Chinese companies and financed by the African Development Bank and the Chinese Exim Bank. It has cut a trip that took several hours 18 months ago to 10 minutes, said Joseph Makori, a professional driver. (AP Photo/Ben Curtis)
