Kenyan #SGR Cares for Wildlife

It is no news that the Kenya SGR project passes through the Nairobi national park.This is particularly noteworthy in the second phase 2A.

Many conservationists had raised eyebrows about alleged disruption of the ecosystem and natural habitats for animals and others.

Interestingly ,the SGR was conceived specifically to address those concerns.

First is that the rail bridge passing through the national park was deliberately designed to be sufficiently high to allow animals like giraffe and other wild tall animals to pass underneath without disturbances.

Secondly ,the rail passing through the park is fitted with sound absorbing mechanism to ensure non-disturbance of natural life habitat.

Comprehensively, the construction activities were handled with minimal effect on the landscape across the rail route.
