sgrConstruction of the Standard Gauge Railway between Mombasa and Nairobi is more than halfway done.

A big chunk of the money to be spent this mega project will go towards constructing the bridges. The longest will be the 2km bridge over Tsavo River. There will also be 8 corridors about 7 metres high and 50 metres long each, to allow wild animals to pass.

The expected completion date is June 2017, and last month, the first bridge was completed.

Here’s a video showing how they do it.
