After barely 4 months after the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) passenger train operations were grounded by the Covid-19 pandemic, the operations are set to resume soon.

According to the Managing director Philip Mainga, following the presidential speech of opening Nairobi and Mombasa counties the SGR will be back to its normal operations.

In a statement to Newsrooms, Mr. Mainga said the management is working on a schedule that will fully adhere to anti-covid-19 health guidelines.

He appealed to locals to remain patient as the management works on a proper schedule to ensure smooth running of the SGR.

The SGR has encountered losses following the Covid-19 pandemic.

On Monday, President Uhuru Kenyatta lifted the cessation of movement in Mombasa, Nairobi and Mandera counties.

The three counties were partially locked in April.

Immediately after the announcement, transport activities resumed in both Mombasa and Nairobi.
