Train Service Between Port Harcourt and Aba to Start in March-NNRC

By March’s end, the train line connecting Port Harcourt and Aba is expected to be fully operational.

While on a Saturday inspection visit to the facility in Port Harcourt, this was made known by Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC).

According to Okhiria, the project manager, the China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC), has promised the NRC that train service to and from Aba will be operational by the month’s end of March.

Also, he mentioned that there are plans to connect the Onne Port to the trains so that commodities may be transported to Aba, Umuahia, and Enugu.

I can tell the Nigerian people that, unlike our previous journey to Aba by road, this time we were able to take a train. He said that they had other plans, so they took a train to Elelewa.

In order to reach Onne from Elelewa, we examined the Port Harcourt Port. We did that and then compared it to the ground-level design they had initially proposed. Sitting down will force us to settle on a definitive plan quickly, allowing us to propose it to the minister for clearance.

Everything was just wrapped up in a meeting, even the schedule. By the end of March, we are forcing ourselves to begin. That is the plan we’re working with.
