Two companies, namely: Messrs Frontline Consortium and African Global Development Sarl, have submitted their technical and financial proposals for the much-talked-about Ghana-Burkina railway project.
The proposal for the railway project is expected to connect major cities and towns on the Tema Port to Ouagadougou in Burkina, where a lot of transit goods are transported by trucks.
Burkina Faso is a landlocked country and has been moving massive volumes of goods from Ghana’s Tema Port to Burkina Faso.
Messrs Frontline Consortium and African Global Development Sarl are two of the three pre-qualified bidders that have met the deadline for submission of bids.
At a forum last week in Accra, Burkina Faso’s Minister of Transport, Urban Mobility and Road Safety, Mr. Vincent Timbindi Dabilgou, stated his country’s commitment to the project
The official opening of the financial proposals has been scheduled to take place in Burkina Faso after the completion of the evaluation process for the technical proposals.
