Kenya is joint-testing its first standard-gauge railway (SGR) before commissioning it to trial
operation between the country’s port city of Mombasa and its capital city of Nairobi.

The 485-kilometer Mombasa-Nairobi SGR designed by the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), is to run at speeds of 80 and 120 kilometers per hour for freight and passenger trains respectively.

It is scheduled to start trial operation on June 1.

China has funded up to 90 percent of the first phase of the SGR which will later further extend to connect Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and Ethiopia.
