As outlined in Kenya Vision 2030, successful road construction is a catalyst for economic development. As a result, the government has made significant investments in road development. Despite the government's continued investment in road construction, the country's road construction projects face a variety of obstacles that prevent them from being completed on time, incurring cost overruns, or failing to reach the required quality requirements. The study sought to determine the effect of the social - cultural environment on the performance of roads projects funded by Nairobi Metropolitan Services, Kenya. This study will be hinged on the Open System Theory. This study uses desk research. The study established from the literature reviewed that the social - cultural environment aspects such as local community literacy levels, community support, language and corruption practices affects the performance of roads projects. The study concluded that the social - cultural environment significantly affects the performance of roads projects. The study recommends that policymakers should hold seminars on the effects of social - cultural environment factors on performance in order to develop reasonable and realistic regulations and laws aimed at performance evaluation and improvement. To achieve high performance in road construction, both macro and micro environmental elements ought to be included in strategic planning.
