Infrastructure Principal Secretary John Mosonik has assured passengers that an access road to the Miritini Standard Gauge Railway station in Mombasa will be complete in seven days.
The 1.5 kilometre road from Miritini shopping centre to the station is expected to ease movement of traffic for thousands of passengers using the Madaraka Express train services. Speaking after inspecting the road being constructed at a cost of Ksh 96 million, Mosonik said it is 85 per cent complete. The road has been an inconvenience to many travelers using the new train due to its poor condition. During the SGR launch on May 31, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered construction of the road as well as a bus park to allow passengers to be dropped off at the facility. Works on the road are being supervised by the Kenya Rural Roads Authority.
