Officially opened to traffic in June 2021 with a main line stretching about 157 kilometers long and a branch line of about 7 kilometers, the link adopts modern railway standards and has a designed speed of 150 km/h.

The railway provides Africa's most populous country with an affordable and safe mode of transportation. It facilitates travel and helps improve the efficiency of port operations and inland cargo delivery.

The railway builder has also been providing all-round technical support, training a large number of technical and managerial specialists and directly creating local job opportunities.
