Inter-mine railway upgrade on

HIGHER Education Minister Brian Mushimba.

GOVERNMENT will spend over US$50 million on upgrading and connecting the inter-mine railway line to all copper smelters on the Copperbelt.

Minister of Transport and Communication Brian Mushimba said the inter-mine railway connection project is in conformity with the preparatory works on signing a Statutory Instrument (SI) to compel the transportation of a minimum 30 percent of all heavy cargo by rail.
Speaking during a tour of the inter-mine railway line at Chambishi Copper Smelter yesterday, Mr Mushimba said the enforcement of the SI will help create jobs.
