Guess Who Is Building Africa’s Fastest High-Speed Rail Line?
Whoever says that Africa rising narrative is faltering should reconsider.
The signs are still there.
The North African country of Morocco is building what will become Africa’s fastest high speed rail line.
The project cost more than 2 billion dollars and has been in development for more than ten years now.
Many countries including Morocco, France, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates have brought the money used in financing the project.
On Thursday, the country successfully tested the high-speed railway.
The latest tests were staged successfully at a speed of 320 km per hour.
In October, Morocco tested the rail line at a speed of 275 km per hour in the presence of French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.
Since the beginning of this year, the train which is French-made double-decker TGVs have been tested ahead of the launch of a flagship new line linking the Mediterranean city of Tangier with Morocco’s financial capital Casablanca in the third quarter of next year.
Another test is expected in February on the whole line.
