Kenya Railways has deployed Railways police officers to the footbridge connecting the Central Business District, CBD, and Landi Mawe. This is after many people were seen using the toot bridge today as Sonko’s ban on Matatus from accessing the City Centre took effect on Monday, 3rd December 2018.
“Kenya Railways would like to urge members of the public using the railway footbridge connecting CBD and Landi Mawe to do so in an orderly manner for their own safety and that of other users,” reads a presser from the Kenya Railways.
According to Kenya Railways, the footbridge is only able to accommodate five people per square metre. “The Railway police have been deployed to the footbridge to manage the heavy human traffic in order to avoid overloading of the bridge which can only support a maximum of 5 people per square metre,” the Corporation adds.
