Can the Minister of Transport propose the creation


The monies involved will be astronomical. With the way our political parties are at each others' throats over very mundane issues, the opposition will have a field day.

To a more serious point. With no steel works of our own, and the supporting industry to produce rolling stock and all tha go to make a railway system, instead of the $9m/kilometer of track laid, the cost to us will probably be inthe region of $27m/km of track.

The government will be the major player but judging from Nkrumah's experience, the whole venture will be sold cheap to foreign investors.

Excellent idea, but for now it most cetainly will remain at dicussion level.
