CHECKING FOR PRIVATE MOTORISTS & SPEED LIMITS OF 50KPH

 

"The Kenya-Uganda Railway was built by a colonial power that sought to dominate East Africa’s coast and interior. This is not mere conjecture, but the admission of the builders themselves: they had seized a colony, they had to hold it and make it pay for its own domination. And so the Lunatic Express, as it was later to become known, took shape," said Uhuru.

Uhuru said the signing of the deal will connect Kenya and the region and open up trade.

"We gather today to observe the signing of agreements for the new standard gauge railway whose construction will connect one end of Kenya to another, and eventually unify all of East Africa, from the ocean to the mountains of the interior.

The costs of moving our people and our goods within across our borders will fall sharply; the better to hasten the East African integration to which we are all committed,"Uhuru said.

The Standard Gauge Railway is aimed at providing efficient and cost effective rail transport for both freight and passengers. It is intended to reduce the cost of doing business by reducing the cost of transport, a move that will see Kenya become a competitive business hub for the East African region and beyond.

Passenger trains will have a speed of 120 kilometers per hour while those for freight will be designed to move at 80 kilometers an hour.
