NAIROBI, May 31 (FAM) – The 480 km railway linking Kenya’s largest port city Mombasa to capital Nairobi, slated to be officially launched on May 31, will be a key infrastructure project that will push forward the East Africa nation’s modernization drive, a senior company executive said Monday.

“The launch of the standard gauge railway (SGR) will undoubtedly contribute to Kenya’s economic and social development as well as improve people’s livelihoods and lead the country to prosperity,” said Chen Yun, Vice President of China Communications Construction Company, parent company of the China Road and Bridge Corporation which built the mega-project.
