Kojokrom- Tarkwa Rail lines undergoes test run tomorrow
It might sound gratifying to the expectant residents of the Western Region, particular of the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis, to have the Kojokrom- Tarkwa Rail lines readied by end of this month.
The reason is that, the Ghana Railway Company Limited (GRCL) will tomorrow [17 September, 2019] begin a series of test runs on the Kojokrom-Tarkwa section of the Western Rail lines. The successful completion of the test run will certify the safety of the lines for shuttle or passenger train service.
It would be recalled that the sector Minister, Joe Ghartey issued a caution to the management of the GRCL in August this year to complete rehabilitation work on the Kojokrom- Tarkwa Rail lines by end of this month, lest suffer the consequences.
This might have gotten the company to expedite work in fulfillment of the deadline.
Should all go as planned, passenger coaches will after decades of “melt-down” be reactivated.
