The President, Professor John Atta Mills is expected to make a major pronouncement today Thursday, October 28, on how the many agreements he signed in China and Japan would be utilized.
This, according to Castle sources, would be on the occasion of the commissioning of the Accra-Tema suburban rail line.
The hitherto vibrant rail service between the two cities has for some time now been redundant, with the tracks and coaches falling into disrepair.
However, with repair works on the rail line linking the two cities and the purchase of a new diesel powered train, services are to resume tomorrow after the official commissioning by the President.
The President, according to Castle sources, will also use the opportunity to commission some other infrastructural projects in the Tema metropolis.
The Director of Communications at the Presidency Koku Anyidoho, who confirmed this Citit indicated the President’s elation at the completion of the rail project, especially the likely positive impact it will have on the worsening road traffic situation between the two cities.
It is recalled that the President on his recent trip to Japan and China secured some funding for the rail sector in an attempt to rejuvenate the sector.
Mr. Anyidoho disclosed that disbursements would start in 2011, to ensure that the rail sector plays its proper role in the transport sector of the country.
