Passenger services on the
Syokimau-Central Business District line in Machakos County, south of
Nairobi, were suspended this week as a result of two broken down wagons
that obstructed the line for the better part of the day.
Speaking to local media, managing director of Kenya Railways
Corporation, Atanas Maina, confirmed that all traffic on the line had to
be suspended on 22 November while technicians tried to resolve the
problem. The suspension of train services in the area had a serious
effect on commuter traffic, as the railway line services one of the
busiest commercial districts in the region.
Maina assured passengers that services would resume no later than 23 November, once the wagons had been successfully removed.
