Warri-Itakpe-Ajaokuta Rail Line Completed…
One of the key infrastructure required for the operation of the Ajaokuta Steel Complex – the Warri-Itakpe-Ajaokuta rail line – has been completed, according to the federal government.
Bwari also stated that work on the central rail corridor linking Ajaokuta with Abuja had begun.
He said, “The dredging of the River Niger has been completed, while work at the Warri Port and the Escravos Channel is about to be completed. These works will facilitate export and import of goods through the Warri Port using flat bottom vessels.
“The Central Corridor Railway Line linking the Warri Port to Abuja through the North Central, home to iron ore, steel plants, coal resources and pegmatite bearing lithium, is also under construction.
“The rail line from the Warri Port through Ajaokuta to Itakpe is already completed. The completion of the ongoing works in the Warri Port and Escravos will ease access to the deep sea and open up business opportunities for Ajaokuta and Delta steel plants by paving way for the shipment of bulk goods to and from seaports.”
