Nairobi's Railway Commuter System

It is gratifying to see the commuter railway system being built. http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/Corporate+News/Future+of+Nairobis+transport+takes+shape+/-/539550/1416372/-/157kn4w/-/index.html

At the moment the only line is the 2.2kms from Syokimau to Embakasi but I hope the process/construction is fast-tracked from CBD (Moi Ave) to JKIA which will cut down on the traffic plying the roads between the CBD & JKIA.

Happy to see a realistic quick, 'cheap' transport solution now almost ready (that will use the existing line and with new coaches, (operated by already existing RVR)

This is nonsensical really, if you are going to do a passenger railway don't do steam engine stuff do modern stuff!!! There is nothing new being done apart from building sheds. The routes already have trains running anyway. I am certain they are spending billions to build those odd looking sheds...how comes there are no renderings of the new train...away with this nonsensical hyping of rubbish!!!

@kauka - LOL, I have not been out there but I see your point. A 'station' is not hard to build but I think there is more than that.

Of course, being Kenya, never discount a shed being built for KES 1 billion!

Kauka said...

Aha, the first NCR train hits the road today, they say the more things change the more they remain the same. As predicted the Syokimau shed cost 1Billion to construct. Nothing is new beyond the sheds.

The other shed is coming up at Makadara again more nonsense really, you don't need a railway station at Makadara, what you need is an interchange at city stadium and retail market roundabouts....

to use the Moroccan Oil. Sometimes, this process starts from the temples and goes
back, and sometimes it begins from the top of the head.

Make sure you only use clean balls for playing
on indoor simulator.
If you make mistakes and you use a simulator, then it will cost you nothing.
You must, however, practice auto-rotations at the flying field with the help of an instructor.

modeling and can track the current computer clock time in order
to correctly place the sun, moon, stars, etc.
