The minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said the Abuja-Kaduna rail project is
100 per cent completed and will be launched in May.
Mr. Amaechi announced this at Idu, Abuja, on Thursday, while inspecting the project along with the contractors, China Civil Engineering Construction Company.
“The essence of my tour is to enable us assess whether we are ready for commercial activities and I think we are. I will be travelling from Abuja to Kaduna tomorrow through the rail.
“In March, they should start the test-run of the rail services for free, then the proper commercial activity will start in May, where we expect
the president to flag-off the use of coaches,” he said.
He said N150 billion would be used to execute the national rail project, with another N60 billion for the Lagos
gauge and yet another N60 billion for the Lagos-Calabar project.
