Can the Minister of Transport propose the creation


Bolus, I share your view that we need to invest in our rail system and extend it into a sub-regional network. I would even extend it farther into a trans-continental network.
This is a developmental project we should ask the Chinese for assistance, as they are the world leaders now in solar and rail technologies. We could start by connecting the regional capitals, and set an example to be followed by the sub-region and the rest of the continent. It wouldn't be far-fetched criss-crossing our country in a network of fast trains that use clean energy, solar-powered in the daytime, and bio-fueled at night. Such a megaproject would be the stimulus to jumpstart a massive socio-economic development of Ghana.
