The National Railways Of Zimbabwe has managed to refurbish over 500 of its wagons since 2019 began, Sunday News reports. This was revealed by NRZ’s traction and rolling stock Chief Engineer Alfred Gunzo who said they have used approximately US$10 Million to refurbish the wagons.
So far we have managed to refurbish 520 wagons requiring varying types of repairs. The cost of refurbishing a single wagon ranges with the magnitude of the damage but generally it costs an average of US$20 000 to work on one wagon but the cost might be lower than that because some of the wagons have materials which are reusable.
A few weeks ago, the deal between diaspora investment group DIDG and NRZ that would have boosted NRZ’s functionality fell apart for undisclosed reasons.
