Zambia NorthWest Rail Project

Zambia’s NorthWest Rail Signs Cooperation Agreement

Zambia’s NorthWest Rail Ltd (NWR), Uroven LTD and Smart Operations (a division of TMH) have signed a cooperation agreement to develop the first phase of the NorthWest Rail project.

The agreement paves way for the parties to conduct a Bankable Feasibility Study for the 166-km Phase 1A (Chingola-Solwezi) so as to take the project to the next stage. The study, which includes land survey and land acquisition process, is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.

The NorthWest Rail project will be implemented in three phases: Phase 1A from Chingola to Solwezi (166 km), Phase 1B (Solwezi – Kalumbila) and Phase 2 (Kalumbila – Jimbe).
