Kenya Railways Corporation will resume second Madaraka Express train services from tomorrow, October 1, 2020.
The announcement follows the Government’s relaxation of anti-Covid-19 measures on Monday.
“As from 1st October 2020 we will have an additional afternoon express train to and from Nairobi and Mombasa,” Kenya Railways said in a tweet on Wednesday.
The second train service which was suspended in April following the outbreak of the coronavirus outbreak is expected to leave Mombasa for Nairobi at 2.15pm and arrive in Nairobi at 7.20pm.
The timetable has been made conceivable after the change of the time limitation period.
Talking on Monda during the National Covid-19 Conference at the Kenyatta International Convention Center in Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta said the time limit would begin from 11pm to 4am, beginning Tuesday, September 29.
The firm continued activities in June after the amendment of time limit hours by President Uhuru. Nonetheless, it just started with the takeoff of one train from Nairobi at 8am that will show up in Mombasa at a quarter to 1pm.
The train from Mombasa then again would leave at 1.55pm showing up in Nairobi at 6.40pm, to empower travelers heading out to different objections beat the 9pm time limit.
In April 2020, the Kenya Railways reported that all SGR traveler administrations would stay shut until further notification after President Uhuru requested the discontinuance of development all through Nairobi Metropolitan Area, Mombasa, Kilifi and Kwale districts.
Yet, following the decrease of Covid-19 cases, the legislature has been loosening up the measures in an offer to support the economy.
The 472-kilometer standard check railroad line among Mombasa and Nairobi was developed at an expense of Sh327 billion. It was co-financed by business and semi-concessional advances from China and the Government of Kenya.
