Train commuters stranded as services are suspended


Commuters using the Syokimau-Central Business District (CBD) train were today forced to use alternative means of transport after operations were suspended due to blockage of the line after two wagons broke down.

The Kenya Railways Corporation Managing Director Atanas Maina stated that the wagons broke down on the railway necessitating services to be disrupted.

He told Capital FM News that efforts are ongoing to restore normalcy and stated that any inconvenience was highly regretted.

“Yes it is true that services along the line have been disrupted. There were two wagons that broke down along the railway and as such, services could not go on,” he stated.

He expressed hope that services would be restored by today evening. “We are however working hard to restore normalcy and to ensure that everything goes back to normal.”

Passenger train services in some routes in the city are usually disrupted by small hitches putting on spot the management on their seriousness.

There are also calls to make sure the services are provided all day long to address the demand.
