Transport cost reduced
Swaziland Railway Chief Executive Stephenson Ngubane said the joint project will help reduce cost of transport between the two countries. “With this project transport cost will reduce. For as it is more direct through Swaziland and more direct to the Ports of Richards Bay. Also including Mozambique at a later stage,” Ngubane said.
Moreover, the project will create more than 9 000 direct jobs in South Africa and Swaziland during the construction of the Rail Link project. “Approximately 3000 and 6500 jobs will be created in South Africa and Swaziland individually during the construction of the Swaziland Railway line,” said Mr Naira.
