Context and objectives

The concept of rail transport corridor is based on the natural assets enjoyed by Togo, namely: the existence of a deep water port, good geography and topography allowing the establishment of an important logistics corridor to the countries of the hinterland, the existence of an important iron deposit in Bassar and an agricultural and mining potential identified in Togo.

The railway project aims to serve the entire Togolese economy and the landlocked hinterland. The strategic ambition of the said project is to make Togo a first choice gateway to West Africa while facilitating the link between transport infrastructure and industrial, agricultural and mining areas as well as the development of poles of ‘economic activities along the corridor.


The concept of the railway project aims to support the development of Togo by developing a strategic infrastructure that allows cross-border trade and the growth of the Togolese economy.


The railway will be served by a modern standard gauge rail system dedicated to heavy traffic. The route easements projected over the 670 km are on average 50 meters on either side of the rail route.

These easements will be used for the viability of the corridor in terms of telecommunications infrastructure, energy, etc., the arrangements necessary for the operation of the railway and the development of densification projects.
