Today CNN highlight Kenya´s mega projects in a visual presentation which is worth a look. Kenya is already an infrastructure powerhouse of East Africa, but it is just the start of development. The next few years may see a quantum leap forward with tens of billions of dollars to be spent on some of the worlds most spectacular transport, energy and technology projects, such as the new Mombasa railway station (above).

Last year we worked with one of these projects, the new CBD (Central Business District) to be built on unused railway land in central Nairobi. Some years ago we worked with plans related to Konza Technology City and I wrote this blog article about the power of country visions. Now three years later, Kenya is well on track to make their Vision 2030 a reality.
