    TARC's Vision:
    Poor to non-existing Railway Infrastructure all over the African Continent, especially in the Sub-Sahara Regions prompted a novel vision that would link coastal countries with a reach to the central African Regions thereby enabling easy and cheap transportation of persons and goods. The outcome would bring Africa back to Africans, be built by Africans for Africans, creating new jobs and at the same time, integrate the African High Speed Railway Network in the larger world’s community, thereby realising a dream: Africa, a young, strong growing Continent with high potential, partnering as equal with maturing economies and Emerging Markets.

    The new AfCFTA (Africa Continental Free Trade Area) agreement provides the basis for people and goods to be transported freely from one destination to another, without constraints. The African Economy is forecasted to grow fast, by acceleration of trade and commerce, boosting transport for goods and people, all over the continent.

    This project will be a significant contribution to AU’s Goal of “Africa Beyond 2063” and will implement a sustainable solution 30 years faster than envisioned.

    With this project, a new approach is proposed, creating a new momentum for partnering with Europe, the natural neighbour of Africa. Funding will be committed, the approach will be “Central Design, Parallel Build, Central Financed, Distributed Operated and Maintained” (DBFOM), with a profit-oriented approach, hence with a strong project governance and own-ership for private and institutional investors.

    New technology will be implemented, thus supporting innovation and minimizing pollution, by involving efficient and effective ECO-friendly available technology. Connections to Asia (Arab States and China) in the East and Europe in the West, will be stablished as well.
