STANDARD GAUGE RAILWAY PROJECT

The Kenya government has undertaken many major projects, unprecedented in size and cost as part of  the Kenya Vision2030 plan (PDF download). These projects aim to modernize all the major economic sectors as part of the government’s objective to transform Kenya into a middle income country by 2030. See Kenya Vision2030 website.

The standard gauge railway project is cause for excitement since this project will modernize the railway system in Kenya. The railway line will open up large parts of the country to new investment. In addition, all are hoping it will bring some structure and balance to the transport system, especially when it comes to freight transport within Kenya and to neighboring countries. The travel time between Mombasa and Nairobi will be cut from 10 hours to 4 hours.
