In a recent statement, the Ghana Railway Development Authority has clarified previous media reports, confirming the procurement of only two contemporary diesel-powered trains from Poland.
The Chief Executive Officer, Yaw Owusu, stated that these passenger coaches are specifically intended for testing purposes on the nearly completed Tema-Mpakadan Railway line.
The anticipated schedule for the trains’ arrival has also been disclosed. The first train is expected to be shipped in mid-February, with an arrival in Ghana slated for March.
Subsequently, the second train is set to be shipped in May and is scheduled to arrive in August.
Mr. Yaw Owusu emphasized, “The first one will be shipped somewhere in the middle of February, and we expect it to be here realistically in March.
The second one will be shipped in May, arriving in August, during the summertime.” This development marks a significant step forward in Ghana’s railway infrastructure enhancement.
