The Tema-Accra passenger train service, which was temporarily interrupted for restoration work, will resume on Monday, July 18, 2022, according to a statement from the management of Ghana Railway Company Limited (GRCL).
The Ghana Railway Development Authority (GRDA) and GRCL jointly conducted a final inspection on July 7, 2022, to determine whether the line was suitable for passenger operation after successfully resolving several technical issues, according to a statement from GRCL.
In a statement, the Ghana Railway Company Limited said that the industry regulator, the GRDA, had given it the go-ahead to start the shuttle service.
“The general public is being advised to bear with us, that as a start, a restricted speed limit of 35km/h has been imposed on the movement of the train to enable our technical team to continue to address any teething problem that may emerge during these early stages of the resumption of the shuttle service.”
“There would also be other GRCL officials onboard the train to obtain the views and concerns of commuters to enable Management of GRCL to address them to ensure smooth running of the passenger service to the best satisfaction of our clients. The general public is hereby assured of our usual comfortable, safe and punctual shuttle service GRCL provides,” the railway company added in the statement.
