Workers of the Ghana Railway Company Limited have been captured neatly dressed with protective gears working on the rehabilitation of the Accra to Nsawam Line.

The 40-kilometre rail line project estimated at GH¢15 million is being undertaken to improve transportation speed and safety.

According to the sector minster, Mr Joe Ghartey, work on the Accra-Nsawam railway line will be completed before the end of this year.

320 people have been employed to work on the line, with the workforce consisting of 305 permanent workers and 15 supervisors. 

Mr Joe Ghartey however told Peacefmonline.com that, the rehabilitation process is a key part to restructure the railways sector in Ghana.

“It is part of the total solution being developed to turn the railways sector around completely,” he said. 

The Minister also noted that his office is working tirelessly to “reorganize the state enterprise, the Ghana Railways Company Limited, providing the facilities for training, rehabilitation of a section of the old narrow tracks, building a new standard gauge modern railway from south to north and the development of a railway economic corridor.”

Mr Joe Ghartey said he will ensure a “strong regulator to regulate the different operators on the railway tracks and developing and ensuring the highest standards in railway operations in Ghana. The regulator will be a safety as well as a tariff regulator.”
