[020914.EN.SEA] Disruption Ends on Dakar-Mali Railway After 8 Locomotives Come into Service

RAIL service between Dakar in Senegal and landlocked Mali is again operating normally following earlier congestion caused by a lack of technical capacity, French shipping line CMA CGM told customers.

The 1,200-kilometre line between Dakar and Koulikoro, via Mali's capital, Bamako, is a bi-national rail concession is run by Transrail, which suffered serious congestion in June.

This induced the shipping line to tell customers to transfer freight to road, but now that Transrail had taken delivery of eight locomotives, the problem had been solved.

Said CMA CGM: "There is no longer any rail congestion and both road and rail options are running smoothly."
