The project, according to Kenya Railways Managing Director Philip Mainga, will be built on 425 acres of Kenya Railways land and will be integrated into the new Nairobi integrated transport system.

"The project is a PPP project, and to the private partners, this promises a good return on investment," said Transport Principal Secretary Joseph Njoroge. This will also aid in the government's vision of the city as a future city."

"We have a lot of underutilized land that we want to create the railway city on," said Philip Maringa, MD of Kenya Railways. We want people to use this facility and have a smooth ride."

The climate-resilient project funded by the United Kingdom through a Ksh.30 billion Public Private Partnership, is projected to be finished in three years, which is intended to improve transportation and interconnection within the city and its surroundings.

The railway city project will help the Kenyan government meet its goal of creating jobs while also providing green and sustainable infrastructure that will help the country regenerate.
