We Can’t Build Any Skytrain In Ghana : Amewu

Published

on

The Minister in charge of Railways and the Member of Parliament for Hohoe, John Peter Amewu has stated categorically that Ghana can never have a Skytrain.

According to the Minister, the country is even facing challenges in constructing and reviving the railways talk more of having a Skytrain service which comes at a huge cost.

This comes as a shock to many as the former Railway minister Joe Ghartey during his term of office signed an agreement for the construction of the Accra SkyTrain Project.

But John Amewu speaking in an interview on Citi FM made it clear that he doesn’t see this coming to pass anytime soon adding that no agreement of that sort has been signed.

“The sky train that we are talking about is the one that is going to run on columns in the sky like the ones you see in Dubai but no agreement has been signed,” he said.

It is not possible to be done now. I don’t see any sky train being done in the next 3-4 years. There is not going to be any sky train in the country. It is not possible

He concluded, “Rail construction takes a lot of time and it is also capital intensive. A Kilometre of a railway line is about four or five times the cost of building a concrete infrastructure in terms of building an asphaltic road”.

Goil Reduces Fuel Price After Akufo-Addo’s Directive

The Ghana Oil Company (GOIL) has reduced fuel by 15 pesewas after a directive from President Akufo-Addo following a meeting with driver unions on Monday, December 6.

The reduction took effect Tuesday morning with a litre of fuel at Goil now selling at 6 cedis 70 pesewas. The reduction came after a crunch meeting with driver unions who declared a sit-down strike Monday over fuel prices.

It is, however, not known how long the reduction will be in effect.

Some commercial drivers in parts of Accra Monday morning began a sit-down strike in protest against numerous levies and taxes imposed on petroleum products by the government, resulting in an increase in fuel prices.

At Gbawe and Mallam in the Weija-Gbawe Municipality, there were many commuters stranded along the shoulders of the road while those who had already boarded commercial vehicles were forced to disembark.

Some GPRTU station officers blocked roads with car tyres and other metallic weapons to prevent the passage of loaded commercial vehicles.

The situation resulted in hot verbal exchanges and a near fisticuff between the station officers and the passengers.

The strike was later suspended after the President called for a meeting with leaders of driver unions to find an amicable solution to the strike.
