The government of Ghana is set to start the feasibility study for the construction of the railway line from Kumasi to Paga which will link up with neighboring Burkina Faso. Meanwhile, the government has completed its official pre-feasibility engagements. The six months study will provide information regarding the construction of the line, known as the Central Spine in Ghana’s railway blueprint. It is expected to include a comprehensive survey and map out the right-of-way to assist with the development of a business case and attract private sector interest in the project. A consortium led by Vision Consult Ghana Limited will undertake the studies regarding the Central Spine from Kumasi to Paga. Other partners in the consortium are Gauff Ingenieure and ILF Consulting Engineers, both from the Federal Republic of Germany.
