Kenya Railways Corporation has announced a temporary closure of the Nairobi Railways bus terminus on Sunday.

In a notice on Friday, the company said the terminus will be temporarily closed on September 24 from 6am to 6pm for a comprehensive Ground Penetration Radar Utility Survey at the Railways Matatu Terminus and Easy Coach Park.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. It is a non-intrusive method of surveying the sub-surface to investigate underground utilities such as concrete, asphalt, metals, pipes, cables or masonry.
