Amewu: Commencement Of commercial Train Operations To Begin End Of May

The Minister of Railways Development, John Peter Amewu is optimistic the commencement of commercial train operations will start by June this year.

He has, therefore, tasked engineers working on the first unit of two modern trains procured from Poland for railway transport in the country to expedite activities to ensure testing commences by the end of April.

Amewu made the call after a delegation of Engineers from Pesa SA (Poland), the train manufacturer and the supplier of diesel multiple units (DMUs), paid a courtesy call on him last week following the arrival of the ultramodern trains in Ghana.

Their visit was in connection with the assembly, testing and operational readiness of these trains to serve the the country.

Sharing the news on Facebook on Saturday (6 April), Amewu said, “The government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia is spearheading a transformative agenda for Ghana’s railway sector, aimed at propelling the nation toward absolute advancements in transportation infrastructure.”

“I am optimistic and committed to ensuring that the commencement of commercial train operations occurs before the conclusion of May, demonstrating our government’s dedication to delivering tangible improvements to our nation’s transportation systems,” Amewu said.
