Travel between Mombasa and Malaba on the Kenya-Uganda border, by the Standard Gauge Railway train, will begin in November this year.
Philip Mainga, Executive Director of the Kenya Railway Corporation, said that the merger of the Modern Railway (SGR) with the old railway line in the Longonot area, has been completed.
This means that Kenyans who want to travel between Mombasa, Nairobi, Kisumu and Busia for Christmas celebrations will use the train.
"The train journeys between Nairobi and Malaba will start in November via a refurbished railway," Mr Mainga said.
A survey conducted by the Daily Nation found that the construction of the 23.5-kilometer-long area connecting the SGR to the old railway line in the Longonot area has been completed.
Construction of the area between Maai Mahiu and Longonot began in August last year. The Railways has also built a freight and passenger terminal in the Longonot area.
The old rehabilitated railway is expected to improve commercial activity in the towns passing between Nakuru and Kisumu.
