Railway Company Suspends Kojokrom-Tarkwa Train Service

Management of the Ghana Railway Company Limited (GRCL) has announced the suspension of the Kojokrom-Tarkwa passenger train service.

According to the Company, the decision became necessary following recent heavy downpour in the Western Region which affected the track repairs.

GRCL had conducted a series of test runs on the track and was in the process of engaging the Ghana Railway Development Authority, the regulator, for a final test run to certify that the line is fit for commercial operations to commence on October 31, 2019.

A statement signed by Managing Director of GRCL, John Essel, made the announcement, saying the general public will be informed when the works are completed and when commercial operations will start.
