A Chinese-built railway in Kenya will link the country's capital Nairobi with the southeastern city of Mombasa, East Africa's largest port.

Construction of the 472-km railway, which started in November 2013, is expected to be completed next year.

International infrastructure contractor China Road and Bridge Corp. is building the railway, with the Export-Import Bank of China financing 90 percent of the $3.8 billion cost.
