Kenya Railways Suspends City Commuter Train Service Due to Flooding

3 December 2019

The commuter train that plies from the CBD to Nairobi Terminus will not be operational on Tuesday, the Kenya Railways Corporation (KRC) has announced.

In a public notice published Tuesday, the corporation said commuter services have been affected due to high water levels at Makadara and Imara Daima stations.

"Due to high water levels between Makadara and Imara Daima stations which have rendered the line impassable, the afternoon link train from the CBD to Nairobi Terminus will not be running today. We regret the inconvenience caused to our link train customers," the corporation said in a statement.
