Russia’s largest transport and logistics company, Delo, will propose building a railway across Africa. The founder and chairman of the board of directors of the group Sergei Shishkarev spoke about this in an interview with Kommersant.

“Our plans are to propose the construction of a railway “orthodox cross”: cross Africa horizontally through Ethiopia to the west coast, build part of the trans-African road from Egypt to South Africa, build connections from Egypt to the Central African Republic,” Shishkarev said.

The company founder noted that these African countries are all rich in minerals and “don’t have normal railways. As far as I know, Tanzania transports everything by road, even uranium ore and bauxite are transported using primitive methods. The railway revitalizes transport and the economy of countries, also from the point of view of possible exports. Not to mention the increased mobility of the population,” Shishkarev said.

Russia is also interested in the project to build a railway that would connect the capitals of Burkina Faso and Ghana.
