Construction of Kenya's first standard gauge railway is well on course five months after it was launched. Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta, who visited construction works earlier in the week, expressed satisfaction with progress so far and was confident that it would be completed on schedule. The 480 kilometre line, to replace a narrow gauge track laid over 100 years ago, is expected to cost the country 3.8 billion dollars.
