Kenya: railways to cross national parks

National Lands Commission and Kenya Wildlife Service granted a ‘right of way’ to Kenya Railways to develop the standard gauge railway through the parks despite protests that it would interfere with wildlife. The access was granted following an environmental impact assessment licence granted to Kenya Railways by National Environment Management Authority in February, last year.
The proposed railway from Mombasa to Malaba, through Nairobi and Kisumu passes through Tsavo East, Tsavo West and Nairobi National parks.
