Put completed railway lines to use- PIAC

The Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC) has charged the government to empower the Ghana Railway Development Authority to operationalize the railway lines in Accra to help bring in revenue needed for the country’s development.

The committee made this call during its inspection of some projects partly funded with oil money in the Greater Accra Region.

PIAC says the delay in operationalizing the completed rail tracks will lead to a deterioration of the rail platforms and the lines, which will cost the country more money to refurbish them before use.

The Vice Chairman of PIAC, Nasir Alfa Mohammed told journalists that the project’s engineers have told the committee that some ‘fixing’ is required before the lines could be operationalized.
