New Moloto railway to link Gauteng to Mpumalanga
A new railway line will finally be constructed along the notorious Moloto Road that links Mpumalanga to Gauteng. The Chinese government will invest R30 billion to develop the over 125 kilometre railway line.
The money is part of the R800 billion investment by the Chinese to develop the continent’s transport infrastructure.
The Chinese Construction Company has signed a co-operation agreement with South Africa’s Passenger Rail Agency – PRASA.
Attracting investment to the continent has been President Jacob Zuma’s rallying call everywhere he goes. It was the same here in Gaungzhou – China’s premier manufacturing hub. And it is bearing fruit.
