BR ON A DRIVE TO LEAD BULK TRANSPORT SECTOR

Botswana Railways (BR) is currently in negotiations with Canadian Outfit to procure eight locomotives as part of an ambitious plan to develop the local transport industry. This will add to the 34 that the parastatal already has. Details are still sketchy but Chief Executive Officer Dominic Ntwaagae said the intention is to have the new locomotives towards the end of 2015.

Eight more locomotives are currently being repaired, six have been outsourced to Transnet and Grindrod in South Africa for maintenance while the remaining two are being repaired in house. The plan is to have them in full operation in the next two years.
