President John Mahama has said the rail transport sector will see massive transformation if he is voted into power for another term.
According to him, government is already prioritizing the sector by revamping some old rail lines and securing loans to build new ones.
Speaking at the inauguration of the newly constructed railway lines from Sekondi to Takoradi Harbour, President Mahama also said work will soon start on the Tema-Akosombo railway lines.
“In 2010 government rebuilt and commissioned the rail line from Asopotsonaa to the Tema harbour. In 2013, the line was further extended to the Community One in Tema to provide a continuous rail journey from the heart of Accra to the centre of Tema township.
“Today we are commissioning a similar effort by government,” he said.[fancygallery id=”1″ album=”33″]
