Development of the Trans Kalahari Railway Line, Coal Storage and Associated Loading Facilities Development of the Trans Kalahari Railway Line, Coal Storage and Associated Loading Facilities

In 2010 the Governments of the Republics of Namibia and Botswana entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate the development of the Trans-Kalahari Railway Line Link in Namibia. In 2014 the two governments signed a Bilateral Agreement on the development of the 1500km line, with its associated coal storage, conveying, loading and other ancillary facilities.

A Project Management Office Agreement led to the establishment of a Project Management Office in Windhoek which was mandated to run the day to day project office matters. It is envisioned that the project will be implemented on a Design- Built -Own -Operate and Transfer investment model.
