China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) has signed agreements with Kenyan cement companies for the provision of materials for the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway. The new East African railway line, which is expected to cost some KES327 billion, will run reportedly from Mombasa to Nairobi and will extend eventually to Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan.

He Yongjian, Procurement Manager of the Standard Gauge Railway project, said the company has already signed agreements with ARM Cement and Bamburi Cement, and is currently negotiating cement supply contracts with Savannah Cement, East African Portland Cement and other local cement manufacturers.
