The National Development Implementation Communication Cabinet Committee (NDICCC) has affirmed that the rehabilitation of Nakuru-Malaba Metre Gauge Railway will be completed by September this year. This was confirmed by the Transport CS James Macharia during an inspection visit to the site yesterday in company of other cabinet secretaries in the country.

The rehabilitation of the project was started back in August 2020 and it was scheduled to be completed after one year and three months. The project begins from Longonot station and linked with Naivasha container depot where the Standard Guage Railway ends, and it will then link to Malaba border.

The project is undoubtedly on course as expected as it was confirmed by Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa who also accompanied CS Macharia during the yesterday's visit. “The contractors are committed to ensure we meet the deadlines given and not just deadline but ahead of schedule. By June we will have the 24km connection between Naivasha ICD and Longonot and by September they have assured us they will have it all the way to Malaba, an area that has not seen trains for a long time,” said Wamalwa.

Upon its completion, the project will further be interconnected with the Kisumu-Makaba brach which is also under implementation. This will open up more employment opportunities across the country as well as promotion several business activities. Also the country's economy is tipped to grow more based on the services provided by the new metre guage railway.
