Brief History of Warri Itakpe Rail Project

Abandoned over three decades ago now almost in its final completion by Buhari Administration

ALL over the world and for several centuries, rail transportation has been the foundation of industrialisation, economic efficiency and productivity. This explains why developed economies continue to expand and fine-tune its rail transportation, while the developing economies strive to build their rail network and expand the same. For instance, the rail infrastructure stock in the United States of America increased 16-fold from 14,000 kilometres in 1850 to over 220,000 kilometres today. The United States’ rail network has annual revenues of about $60 billion, provides 221,000 jobs and delivers 5 million tons of freight and transports approximately 85,000 passengers every day. Findings show that one-third of all exports from the United States are facilitated by rail transport.
