Global Construction Review reported China Railway Wuju Group Corporation has signed an agreement worth USD 500 million to build a section of Ghana’s Standard Gauge Western line. The agreement was signed in Beijing by the Ghana Railway Development Authority.

Under the agreement, CRWG will build 100km of rail between the towns of Manso and Dunkwa in less than a year. A 22km section between Kojokrom to Manso was awarded to the Ghanaian engineer Amandi in 2017 and is under construction.

Mr Joe Ghartey, the minister for railways, said the country’s system was in a “sorry state”. He said “The British, who colonised the Gold Coast, now Ghana, left behind an active railway network of 947km, which the present government is working hard to renovate, add more lines and coaches to make the sector more viable despite the less than 100 km operational rail network.”
