Nairobi County is ready to launch an urban transport system after the National Treasury agreed to finance it.

Last month, the acting director-general of public debt management at the Treasury, Jackson Kinyanjui, wrote to Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure accepting the proposal for the allocation of $4 million for the construction of the Mass Rapid Transit System.

The 167km project will see the construction of new roads and railway lines linking the city to several satellite towns.
