Stories and facts

The Ghana Railway Company Limited, formerly the Ghana Railway Corporation, manages Ghana's railway network, established in 1898 as the Gold Coast Government Railways.

It separated from ports in 1976 and transitioned to a limited liability company in 2001. The Eastern Railway, constructed in 1923 for mineral and cocoa transportation, faced challenges due to inadequate port facilities. Ghana's railway development includes contracts signed in 2007 for the ECOWAS rail plan and the procurement of diesel units from China in 2008 for a shuttle service from Accra to Tema.

Expansion projects in 2010 included new railway lines and branches. Despite limited operational segments, the company aims to modernize and expand Ghana's railway infrastructure for improved connectivity and economic growth.
