The revamped railway line to boost Nanyuki
The rehabilitation of the Nairobi – Nanyuki railway line has now injected new life into the town of Nanyuki. The railway line was constructed by the colonial government in 1908 to promote commercial farming for the residents of the town and has remained unused since the late 1980s.
The refurbishing has brought about new opportunities in the region for several businesses. The 240 kilometers line connects eight counties boosting the trade industry across the country.
Major companies have already taken advantage of this resource, and are now moving their products to market using the railway. The line will not only be used to transport cargo but also passengers to and from Nairobi – Nanyuki.
What does this mean for Nanyuki?
Nanyuki is an ideal and strategic location to access areas within Laikipia County and the larger Mount Kenya region. This ever-popular tourist destination attracts both local and international business investors.
Tourism is one of the top four economic drivers for Laikipia County and Nanyuki is at the center stage with its exquisite natural features and wildlife conservancies. Other drivers for the county include horticulture, livestock, and cereals production.
The massive potential of the county has led to significant growth in its population with investors streaming in to reap the benefits of Nanyuki and its environs.
Currently, the town is the main airbase for the Kenya Air Force and the British army also has a base within the area. This has immensely contributed to the security of area meaning as an investor you have one less concern about your investment.
One of the top investments that thrive in the region is real estate due to the increase in the value of land and related infrastructure developments. The Wealthsmith Company has projects in the area and has also witnessed a rise in demand for land. Some of the projects such as Nanyuki Foothills sold out within a short period. The projects available for investment are Amara Gardens Holiday Homes, Esian, and the new kid on the block Nanyuki Waterfront phase 2.
