LMI Holdings has achieved another milestone in contributing to Africa’s infrastructure towards its industrialisation agenda to build back better. In attendance for the sod-cutting ceremony to begin the construction of Ghana’s first inland marine port and associated industrial park in the Savannah Region was Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
LMI Holdings is developing the Trans-Volta Logistics Corridor, a multimodal transportation route that will use Volta Lake to convey containers and bulk freight from the Port of Tema to Burkina Faso and other landlocked nations. Additionally, this serves as a competitive advantage for factories set in Dawa to enable effective exportation of goods through the Debre port to the Savannah Region.
The Tema-Mpakadan railway line will be completed at a new port that will be built to make it easier to load and unload cargo from Tema and Debre. The Debre Inland Port is anticipated to positively impact transportation, the creation of jobs, rural development, revenue generation, and many other aspects of Ghana’s infrastructure. By 2025, the entire project is anticipated to be fully functioning.
