MOMBASA Kenya (AP) — Kenya's president on Tuesday opened the country's largest infrastructure project since independence a Chinese-backed railway costing nearly $3.3 billion that eventually will lix a large part of East Africa to a major port on the Indian Ocean as China seeks to increase trade and influence.

肯尼亚 蒙巴萨 (美联社)——肯尼亚总统在周二开放了自从独立以来该国最大的基础建设项目: 一条耗费了近33亿美元的有中国背景的铁路,这条铁路将把东非大部分地区同印度洋上的一个主要港口连接起来,从而提升中国在该地区的贸易和影响力。



The railway replaces part of the 660-mile (1062-kilometer) line known as the "lunatic express" which was built by the British more than a century ago and lixed Lake Victoria with the port city of Mombasa. Kenya Railways says the newly opened stretch will reduce passengers' travel time from the capital Nairobi to Mombasa from more than 10 hours to four.

这条铁路替代了那条660英里(1062公里)以“疯狂铁路”著称的铁路的一部分,当时这条连接了维多利亚湖到港口城市蒙巴萨的铁路由英国在近1个世纪以前建造,肯尼亚铁路部门称新铁路的延伸开放将缩短乘客从首都奈洛比到蒙巴萨的旅行时间,由过去的10个多小时到现在的4小时。


The Chinese-funded Chinese-constructed project has drawn criticism from some observers who call it overpriced; its cost represents about 5 percent of Kenya's GDP. Activists have blocked the railway's second phase with a court order because of concerns about the impact on wildlife as it cuts across Nairobi National Park. Passengers on Monday's journey saw dozens of elephants zebras and other wildlife en route to the coast.

这项中国出资中国兴建的项目引来了一些观察者们“造价过高”的批评;其成本大约占肯尼亚整个GDP的5%。活动家们带着法院指令阻止了这条铁路的第二阶段,因为担心这条穿过内罗毕国家公园的铁路会对野生动物造成影响。(肯尼亚山国家公园和自然森林位于肯尼亚东部,距离首都内罗毕东北193公里处,它横跨赤道,距肯尼亚海岸480公里。肯尼亚山国家公园位于海拔1600米到5199米,占地面积为142020公顷,包括:肯尼亚山国家公园71500公顷,肯尼亚山自然森林70520公顷。)。乘客们在周一去海边的旅程中就看到了数十只野生大象和斑马以及其他野生动物。

The newly opened railway is the first phase of a project to connect Kenya's landlocked neighbors Uganda Rwanda and South Sudan to Mombasa.

这条新建的铁路是这个项目的第一阶段,将肯尼亚的内陆邻国乌干达,卢旺达以及南苏丹同蒙巴萨连接起来。
