Metro Con­struc­tion

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

Mau­ri­tian Gov­ern­ment re­cently un­veiled an am­bi­tious rail­way project named Metro Ex­press val­ued at more than $537 mil­lion. The project will con­nect the na­tion’s five main cities. Ac­cord­ing to the na­tion’s Prime Min­is­ter Pravind Jug­nauth, the project will sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove Mau­ri­tius’ eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment by re­duc­ing costs re­lated to road traf­fic and can help greatly re­duce car­bon emis­sions.

More­over, the Metro Ex­press will trans­port 53,800 pas­sen­gers each day over its first year of op­er­a­tion, a fig­ure which will grow 4 per­cent year on year, ac­cord­ing to the Min­istry of Pub­lic In­fra­struc­ture and Land Trans­port.
