Gov’t plans Accra-Kumasi high speed rail - our Honorables (vulnerables) at work

 

Commentary, March 30, Ghanadot - A well planned road system that crisscrosses our nation to various points will do the job, not a show piece of a Bullet Train.

A good three lane highway, in each direction, should bring the journey to Kumasi closer to three hours. Fifty years ago, a three hour journey by road from Accra to Kumasi was possible. But those who need to cut the time in half should fly and save us the huge $30 billion investment cost for the Bullet Train.

However, be warned first. An acquisition of a Bullet Train would keep us tethered to debt and waste forever.
