Promoting Ghana-Burkina Faso connectivity
This development is part of a wider vision to connect Ghana with Burkina Faso through a 1000 km interconnection project. The project aims to link Ouagadougou to the port of Tema, thus promoting seamless transport between the two nations. The inaugural standard gauge train purchased by the Ghanian government is due to depart Poland in February 2024, arriving in Ghana in mid-March.
