Kenya Railways has announced that the Nairobi Railway matatu terminus will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 24.
In a statement released on Friday, September 22, the institution stated that the closure is necessary for carrying out a utility survey.
"Kenya Railways in conjunction with Nairobi City Council intends to carry out a comprehensive Ground Penetration Radar Utility Survey at the Railways Matatu Terminus and the Easy Coach Park," read the statement.
Public Service Vehicles (PSV) and the general public have been urged to opt for alternative pick-up and drop-off points.
“Matatus from Ngong Road and Valley Road to pick up and drop off passengers at the Green Park,” read the statement.
“Those from Langata and Mombasa Roads to use Agip Bus Bay, in front of Posta City Square and the street between Neno Evangelism Church and Shell-Petrol Station, off Haile Selassie Avenue.”
According to the public notice, the procedure is part of the Nairobi Railway City Project that involves planning and design of the new Nairobi Railway Station and public Realm.
This project was launched on December 7, 2022, in a groundbreaking event that was graced by president William Ruto.
It is aimed at providing seamless integration to the city’s modes of transport through an expanded Central Station, new Bus Rapid Transit lines and stations as well as revamped matatu termini.
