افتتاح طريق شرق النيل السريع بين مصر والسودان يناير المقبل


الأسكندرية 08-11-2012 (سونا)

Quote:
توقعت مريم محي الدين المستشار الاقتصادي المساعد في السفارة السودانية بالقاهرة أن يتم افتتاح طريق شرق النيل السريع الرابط بين مصر والسودان خلال شهر يناير المقبل.

وكان د. مصطفى عثمان إسماعيل الوزير بالمجلس الأعلى للاستثمار، قد ذكر في تصريحات صحفيه سابقه أن طريق شرق النيل سيفتتح قريبا بعد إتمام عملية البناء، موضحا أن ما تبقى هو إنشاء المعبر.

وقالت محي الدين في تصريحات صحفية علي هامش مؤتمر وزراء النقل العرب بمدينه الإسكندرية - شمال مصر - الذي بدأت فعالياته أمس الأربعاء ويختتم اليوم كذلك إن طريق غرب النيل الرابط بين مصر والسودان سيتم إفتتاحه خلال الربع الأول من عام 2013، دون أن تشير إلى موعد محدد لذلك.

وأوضحت أن "الطرق الجديدة ستساهم في تنشيط حركه التجارة البينية، خاصه مع مصر، حيث تضمن خفض تكلفه النقل التجاري وخاصه لحوم الابقار بنسبة 80% تقريباً".

وأشارت إلى أن الطرق الجديدة ستساهم أيضاً في تنشيط التعاون مع تركيا صاحبة النشاط الاقتصادي الواسع في السودان، كما أنها تعتبر حلقه وصل بين الدول العربية وأوروبا.

وأضافت أن السودان يهتم بالاستثمارات التركية ، وتعتبر أنقرة شريكا تجاريا مهما

I've looked at the official webpage but for some reason I'm still sceptical!

It is a bit strange though that neither the Wadi Halfa train nor the Port Sudan trains are running.

Public Transport Crisis in Khartoum...Suffering Continues.



Quote:
Khartoum state is experiencing a public transport crisis with residents complaining about the difficulty of getting a bus from their homes to work. Things are getting worse with no solutions in the horizon. Sudan Vision met many residents who desperately urged the relevant authorities to address the root causes of the problem so that the situation can be handled as soon as possible.
Daily suffering
Many residents confirmed that it takes them too long to get home after a long day of work as they cannot make the bus after leaving their work despite the assurances of public transportation authorities to solve the problem soon. However, according to public bus use, it has been two months now without the problem being solved or any serious steps to address the issue. Residents are left to their fate of standing for hours waiting, running after coaches and getting nothing but the now typical response of drivers—“Not going back.”
How long will the crisis continue?


Public Transport
Sudan Vision interviewed some residents at Karkar bus station, Bahry (Khartoum North), who were wondering how long their suffering would last. “It is a nightmare,” some remarked. “I have to get up an hour earlier to make sure that I arrive at work on time,” said Mohamed Saleh, an elderly man, a resident of Salha neighbourhood, south of Omdurman. “People all over Khartoum are suffering from the lack of public transport, especially during morning and evening,” he continued.
I found Tayba Al-Tijani, a university student, crying. When I asked her about the reason for her tears, she told me that she was too late for home, and it was time for her to be home to hit the books to get ready for exams. “Now I’m already late, and by the time I’m home I can’t do anything but crash. So when should I do my revisions for the exam?” she asked worryingly. “I don’t want my five years of hard studies to go in vain. I came here from a remote region hoping to achieve high scores to find a good job to support my family, but now I can’t spare time for studies because of having difficulty getting the bus from home to my college and back home.”
Al-Taj Mohamed Medani, a minibus driver, attributed the increase in bus fares to rocketing prices of fuel, lubricants and spare parts. “A car starter used to cost 200 pounds, but now a second-hand one is about 1,500 pounds,” he said. Many bus owners are getting out of the business due to the increasing cost of operation. Medani said that the problem could be solved either by allowing the importation of second-hand vehicles, cutting taxes, or exempting second-hand spare parts from taxes. “Otherwise, things are going to get worse and worse,” he warned. He said that he understands that the government cannot revoke its decision to lift subsidies on fuel, but at the same time, he warned that many buses would go out of operation due to the hike in spare part prices, which would add fuel to the flames.


Public Transport
Medani added that many drivers prefer working during rush hours because the bus tariff is insufficient and take on more passengers during afternoons. “Drivers are sometimes compelled to resort to crooked ways to earn their living to escape traffic offences,” said Mohamed Al-Tayeb, another driver.
Hike in spare parts prices
The president of the sub-union of coach owners, Diab Gas-Al-Seed, said that bad and bumpy roads also contribute to vehicle damage and public transportation problems, not to mention the traffic congestion and road works on some routes. He said that the union is doing its utmost to reduce suffering by changing the routes of some buses; however, he said the decision to ban the import of second-hand spare parts and vehicles is aggravating the problem rather than minimising pain.
He called on concerned authorities to sit with the unions and for drivers and bus owners to listen to their complaints to reach a common ground and solve problems. Otherwise the situation will get worse and worse. He said that the union met authorities in the state to find a solution to the problem to alleviate passengers’ suffering.
How long will this problem linger, Mr. Governor?
The state has been saying it will shift major routes to one way lanes to reduce traffic congestions and provide an additional 750 buses in addition to the 2000 existing buses. The problem is that these buses are running only in the morning on limited routes. According to reports, there were about 47,000 coaches taking passengers to various neighborhoods in Khartoum, but now only 17% of them are in good condition.


Public Transport
Residents noted that they have spent ten pounds on transport daily because the bus fare doubles after 6 pm in the absence of monitoring organs to control public transport prices. Scenes at bus stations across Khartoum are lamentable with women and children sitting on the ground waiting for the bus for hours and hours, in addition to having to fight for a bus with a crazy crowd. It is heart-breaking to see old men, women, children and girls chase buses with drivers telling them “not going back.” What should these poor citizens do, as presumably nobody seems to be concerned about what is happening?

طريق بري بين السودان ومصر يكشف اثار قديمة ويمهد لمنطقة حرة


القاهرة 11-12-2012 (سونا)

Quote:
كشف محمد البهنيئى، رئيس لجنة النقل والطرق بجمعية مستثمرى أسوان بمصر ، انه سيتم خلال أربعة أشهر الانتهاء من تنفيذ مشروع الطريق البرى بطول 362كم الذى يربط مدينة أرقين الحدودية الواقعة على بعد 100 كم من منطقة توشكى مع منطقة دنقلا شمال السودان، موضحاً ان الأعمال قد بدأت فى هذا المشروع فى أكتوبر 2010.

وذكر البهنيئى، عضو مجلس إدارة مجموعة شتات للاستثمار، التى تقوم بتنفيذ المشروع ان الطريق الذى يبدأ من دنقلا السودانية حتى أرقين تبلغ تكلفته الاستثمارية 140 مليون دولار وانه استلزم تقنيات حديثة متطورة ومعدات ثقيلة بلغت قيمتها 30 مليون دولار .

وقال رئيس لجنة الطرق بجمعية مستثمرى أسوان، إن هذا المشروع يتم تنفيذه من خلال كوادر سودانية ومصرية بلغ عددهم نحو 250 مصري، بالاضافة إلى نحو 200 من الجانب السوداني، حيث تبلغ نسبة العمالة من الجانب السودانى نحو 40%.

ولفت البهنيئى إلى أن الطريق البرى بين جنوب مصر وشمال السودان سيخدم عدداً من المشروعات الاستثمارية فى مجالات عديدة منها صيد الأسماك، ومشروعات الطاقة والتعدين وعدد من مواقع الآثار التى تم اكتشافها خلال تنفيذ المشروع، ولفت إلى انه سيتم تخصيص نحو 50 كم مربعاً على طول الحدود بين الدولتين لانشاء منطقة حرة.

وفى سياق متصل، صرح البهنيئى بأن مجموعة شتات للاستثمار تدرس تنفيذ مشروع طريق برى فى منطقة شرق أفريقيا يربط بين كينيا وتنزانيا.

Sudan eyes railway revival to help transform its economy


On rail tracks in Atbara, Sudan’s main railway city, stray engines and empty coaches from trains built in Europe, India and the US, some more than 50 years ago, stand still in the scorching heat.

The trains broke down years ago and many of the coach windows have been smashed, while the tracks they stand on are derelict.

Sudan was once home to Africa’s largest railway network, with more than 5,000km of track running from the Egyptian border to Darfur in the west, Port Sudan on the Red Sea coast and Wau in what is now South Sudan.

Today, after decades of mismanagement and neglect, most of the country’s rail track is out of service. But the government, with the help of Chinese money and expertise, wants to rebuild it and restore some of the industry’s former glory.

Modernising the railways, Khartoum hopes, will boost the export of livestock and products such as cotton and gum arabic — an edible gum taken from acacia trees and used in soft drinks and drugs. That would help support Sudan’s economy, which has been plunged into crisis by the loss of most of the country’s oil production since it split from South Sudan in 2011.

“We need the railway,” said Transport Minister Ahmed Babiker Nahar. “Road traffic is expensive. The railway is cheaper, faster, safer and has a bigger capacity. Livestock arrives in better condition by rail.”

The government’s plan will require considerable investment. State railway operator, the Sudanese Railway Corp, has just 60 trains left in operation. And they cannot travel at more than 40 kilometres an hour because the British-designed wooden sleepers and tracks, mostly laid between 1896 and 1930, are too weak.

“The entire rail network is broken down,” said Makawi Awadh Makawi, head of the Sudanese Railway Corp “We have no passenger trains operating anymore and transport only 10% of the cargo traffic in Sudan.” Most goods are transported along Sudan’s poor road infrastructure.

Makawi said China, Sudan’s biggest aid donor and one of the biggest investors in the African country, and South Korea had agreed to replace and repair old freight and passenger trains. Khartoum is also in talks with Ukraine about buying trains and railway track.

He would not disclose details of the train contracts. China typically funds development projects in Sudan by granting loans which pay Chinese firms doing the work on the ground.

Chinese state firms built up much of Sudan’s oil industry before the secession of South Sudan and have also built a major dam on the Nile, as well as cross-country roads and are due to build a new airport in Khartoum.

Sudan should become a transport route for some of South Sudan’s oil production once the two countries can agree an arrangement.

As part of a drive in Africa to secure raw materials and oil, Chinese firms have also invested in Sudan’s gold industry.

“We have a contract with the Chinese for 100 passenger and 100 cargo cars and another deal for 50 cars for oil tanks,” said Nahar, adding that South Korea had delivered 13 locomotives so far.

Work to renew the rail tracks started last year when China’s Shanghai Hui Bo Investment Co (SHIC) opened a plant in north Khartoum, opposite the Sudanese capital’s main train station, and is producing 1,200 concrete sleepers a day, according to its Sudanese manager Sharaf Nasser.

Within two years, officials hope to renew between 1,000 and 2,000km of track across the country. In a first sign of progress, a daily cargo train has started running from Khartoum to Atbara, some 300km north of the capital, from where a line to Port Sudan is now being rebuilt.

Officials hope to restart the line from Khartoum to Nyala in Darfur via North Kordofan state, where most gum arabic is produced, although no start date has been set. A map in the manager’s office of SHIC’s plant marks the next vision: extending the rail line from Nyala into neighbouring Chad. Sudan announced plans this month to give Chad fixed storage space in Port Sudan to encourage bilateral trade. GLORIOUS PAST

In its heyday the state railway operator used to control river trade along the Nile, as well as Sudan’s ports and the country’s telegraph network, in addition to its rail traffic. Until the 1980s it also owned extensive housing compounds, social clubs and hotels to serve more than 30,000 employees.

“The railway made up 40% of GDP in 1959,” said Nahar, referring to the total combined income from the railways, ports, river trade and hotels at that time.

In Atbara, where the railway divides the city in two, there are reminders of a glorious past.

One half looks like any other Sudanese town, with low-rise buildings and bustling street vendors, while in the other half, virtually a ghost town, dozens of elegant villas, built by the British to house railway managers, are now derelict.

Among the few occupied buildings is a large colonial-style villa, used as a Sudan army post.

The railway’s decline began in the 1980s when the late President Jaafar Nimeiri, fighting economic turmoil, ordered layoffs and cut funds for the railway after failing to break the power of the Communist Party and the trade unions, which frequently ordered rail strikes, paralysing the economy.

More than 20,000 workers were fired within a decade, most of them after a strike in 1989 after President Omar Hassan al-Bashir came to power in an Islamist coup.

“This regime (under Bashir) destroyed the railway,” said Kamal Hussein, a Communist Party member who was fired in 1989 after working as a railway accountant in Atbara and Khartoum for 23 years and now works for a private firm.

“I was fired for political reasons. I had to leave the company housing,” said Hussein, who still thinks of the railway as one big family. “The railway was the engine of the economy.”

Governments since have struggled to raise funds to maintain railway infrastructure, including buying new trains.

At SHIC’s spanking new factory in Khartoum, manager Nasser says the concrete sleepers being produced will allow trains to travel at high speed.

“The new sleepers will allow travel of 180km per hour,” he said.

That would facilitate the shipment of goods across the country including the transport of livestock and agricultural products, which account for around 20% of Sudan’s exports, according to central bank data.

Boosting exports of gold, minerals and agricultural products is vital for the country’s economy, which has been struggling to contain soaring inflation and a sharp deterioration in the value of the Sudanese pound since the South took away oil revenues.

But at the railway workshop in Khartoum, a large hall which still has signs in English from the colonial era which ended with Sudan’s independence in 1956, workers in oil-stained overalls are more sceptical about the government’s plans to revive the industry.

“It’s not possible for the railway to make a comeback. It will only get worse,” said Amir Abdel Hafith, a worker who had just finished his day shift. He makes only 350 Sudanese pounds ($50 based on the black market rate) a month, not enough to pay for food and housing when inflation in Sudan is running at 43%.

The state railway company, he says, is giving priority to repairing and maintaining trains owned by private companies, including oil companies, rather than the bulk of train stock which is state-owned, because private companies pay well to have work done.

Sudan looks to rebuild war-ravaged railway


SUDANESE Railway Corporation (SRC) is reportedly in negotiations with Ukraine, Korea, and China as it prepares to issue a tender in the next few months for 10 locomotives as well as track materials to rehabilitate about 1000km of railway. The project could be worth up to $US 500m in its initial stages.

All this revival news is brilliant! Just a question though. Will the main passenger railway stations, such as the one in Khartoum North, as well as other cities be rehabilitated for passengers, or are they focusing on freight only?
