Major renovations of the Nairobi Central Station began on July 27, 2020. This will see the station get a new face as it’s the central point in the city that connects the commuter rail network.
The rehabilitation of the station will see that it fits with the guided measures of embarking and disembarking from the Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) that are set to arrive in the country.
