The National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) says that it will soon open up new routes across the country to improve efficiency and revenue generation.
While speaking to guests at the Zimbabwe Infrastructure Summit in Harare on Wednesday, NRZ public relations officer Nyasha Maravanyika said:
We have a number of projected new routes, one of which intends to cut the distance from Hwange to Harare by avoiding passing through Bulawayo and going straight to Kwekwe.
There is also the projected route from Harare to Mutoko which will stretch over to Nyamapanda and the Lion’s Den to Kafue route.
Maravanyika revealed that NRZ entered into an agreement with the Diaspora Infrastructure Development Group -Transnet consortium to revamp the company’s infrastructure.
The agreement expired in February and the two parties expect to revive the agreement within the next 6 months.
