GHANA: PROPOSED ECOWAS COASTAL LINE

After commissioning the Accra-Tema railway in October 2010, Ghanaian President John Atta Mills broke ground to begin continuation works on the Tema Harbour station to Japan Motors rail line.

According to Ghana Railway Development Authority (GRDA) chairman Dan Markin, a memorandum of understanding has been signed and funding promised by foreign institutions for the planned Ecowas (Economic Community of West African States) line linking Aflao-Tema-Accra, Winneba, Cape Coast, Takoradi and Omaape. The first phase including the Accra suburban line is expected to break ground in February 2011.

    The proposed ECOWAS Coastal line goes almost the whole way from the border with Togo and close to the Capital of Togo in the east to the border with Ivory Coast in the west.

    Logically the line would be extended in the future to other countries and capitals such as Benin, Nigeria (Lagos), etc.

    Omaape is probably spelled Omape.
