President Uhuru Kenyatta launches phase 2A of the SGR

President Uhuru Kenyatta is today launching the phase 2A of the standard gauge railway. this is after a 5 moths delay which was caused by the delay in compensation of the 1810 persons that were affected.

Commissioning of the 120.49 kilometers (Phase 2A) project will see Madaraka Express passenger and freight services commence.

The most affected area was a 35- kilometers stretch between Embul Bul (Ngong) and the Nairobi National Park, where compensation delays slowed down the contractor- China Communications Construction Company .

The phase 2A of the SGR cuts across 4 counties namely; Nairobi, Kajiado, Nakuru and Narok. in the 4 counties there are passenger stations at Ongata rongai, Ngong, Mai Mahiu, suswa and Narok.

To date a total amount of Sh17.6 billion has been spent on compensation, through the National Lands Commission.

Acting Managing Director Philip Mainga had assured Kenyans that they would begin enjoying train services both passenger and freight from Mombasa to Mai – Mahiu from June, 1 2019.
