Zambia set to revamp rail sector-Tayali

Economy Zambia set to revamp rail sector-Tayali

Minister of Transport and Logistics, Frank Tayali says the government is working on modalities of revamping the rail sector.

Mr. Tayali said President Hakainde Hichilema is looking at Railway projects within the sub-region that can benefit various countries collectively and not individual nations.

Mr. Tayali said this yesterday in Tanzania’s business capital, Dar es Salaam that the US $ 7.3 billion railway project being constructed by the Tanzania Railway Corporation- TRC is one example that will enhance the rail sector in Africa.

He said the Tanzania project is one that Zambia can replicate in collaboration with some neighbouring countries.

“We shall continue to grapple with ways in which we can undertake similar projects looking at the kind of fiscal strength within which the country is able to undertake a similar project,” Mr. Tayali said.

TRC Director General, Masanja Kungu Kadogosa said the project is being implemented in any way that would not disturb citizen’s day to day business operations.

“The stations will also have facilities such as super markets, shopping malls, a multistory building, and restaurants among others in order to boost cash flow for the railway company, “he said.

  2. Putting railway infrastructure in place will take a LONG time and cost BILLIONS – and only THEN it might make money. I won’t live to see it, that’s for sure

  3. Frank stop day dreaming revamping the rail sector is not kids play where you throw $120m here and $100m there, its a full scale project that needs billions of dollars which you dont have,

  4. @ upnd CADRE: sorry for you my friend cos Professor Chirwa is just another day dreaming Kasai. Non of his rantings if practical. Well, if it is, why hasnt he himself come up with any tangible project to show for it? The bagger talks of making his own car but just the day he simply modified a Toyota Quantum mini bus-Toyota could sue for that mischief. I guess now you can see why i say this bogus BujiMayi Professor is only making empty noise with totally nothing to show for it(Zero). This is just another day dreaming conman. If it wast, then where are his designs or patents(instd of illegally modifying other people’s cars)?
