Re Water Yam

lol, I school outside the country and I know what Im talking about. I'm even outside Ghana at the moment.The design of the railways from colonial times was to take raw material from the western hub to the harbour and ship to europe. It is still the same model. How much does the sector make in terms of transporting people? zero. They don't even break even. The only money they make if from Manganese from Insuta. If we could change the system whereby all heavy load( iron rods, cement etc bound for the hinterland and neighbouring countries could be transported by rail that is when it becomes useful because it will lessen the pressure on our roads. In fact most heavy duty trucks exceed the axel load limit and that spoils our roads quickly. We need a policy on bulk transportation for the railways to be productive
