Kenya : Govt. to complete construction of Nairobi-Naivasha SGR in 2019.

The construction of Phase II of Standard Gauge Railway from Nairobi to Naivasha will be concluded in September 2019.

The government aims to finish the building work on December 2019.

However, a review in the plans showed it will be concluded three months before the set deadline.

Transport Principal Secretary Paul Maringa stated, "Both the rail and the special economic zone should be operational by the end of 2019."

The 120-kilometre Nairobi-Naivasha line, which will cost the taxpayer Sh150 billion, links with the newly completed stretch from Mombasa port to Nairobi.

The SGR is expected to finally link Kampala and Nairobi through Naivasha, Kisumu and Malaba.
