Zambia will Extend Railway Network
The Zambia Government has signed an agreement with foreign investors to carry out three rail projects in the country.
The first contract involves the extension of Chipata-Mchinji railway line to Mpika through Petauke to be linked to the Tanzania & Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA).
The second agreement involves the construction of a 1,000km railway line from Solwezi to Kasempa and Kaoma to Katima Mulilo that will run up to Namibia through Walvis Bay.
The other agreement covers a 200km rail line stretching from Nseluka, near Kasama in the northern province, to link to Mpulungu port.
After completion of the projects they will complement the country’s two other railway systems in the country, the Railway System of Zambia and TAZARA.
