Abuja Rail Project Still At 27%

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCT) Abuja Mono Rail Project has managed to progress to 27 percent of completion, five years after the commencement of work.

Media reports reveal that the project, which started in 2007, might have been stalled by the financial constraints the federal government is facing

The FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed, while speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony of the Abuja Rail Mass Transit Station, promised that, with the available $500 million loan from the Chinese Exim Bank, the completion and subsequent operation of the project would be accelerated.

He added that the project would mark a positive turning point in the transport fortunes in the FCT, in addition to affording commuters the opportunity of a cheaper, comfortable and safer transportation.
