Tema-Mpakadan Railway Project to be Completed by December 2022
In an earlier story, YEN.com.gh wrote about how the Tema-Mpakadan railway project is nearing completion. By December 2022, the Tema-Mpakadan railway project should be finished, giving local commuters a quicker mode of transit within the city.
Hon. John-Peter Amewu, Ghana's Minister for Railway Development, announced the information. Since Ghana's railway system has been inactive and out of commission for a while, many people have embraced the Tema-Mpakadan railway project.
The railway project is a component of a complex scheme to link Tema to other northern regions of the nation to ease the transportation of commodities from the commercial hub of Tema to locations like Burkina Faso.
