Global Highways Out of Poverty



Railways are an efficient transport mode—concentrating people and goods and transporting them over a fixed route using one prime mover and multiple carriages and freight wagons. Rail transport is generally more fuel efficient than road transport; in the US, rail freight is on average 63 percent more fuel efficient than road transport.


The most significant forces that must be overcome, besides the weight of the goods being transported, are rolling resistance and aerodynamic drag as speeds increase. Next to water transport, rail transport is the most energy efficient means of moving large volumes of goods and passengers. Railways are ideal to transport high volumes of bulk commodities or passengers.

Rail transport costs for bulk materials are generally quite low—typically less than $0.03 per ton-kilometer; passenger transport is equally inexpensive, typically less than $0.10 per passenger-kilometer. On relatively dense freight oriented railways, rail transport can average less than $0.02 per ton-kilometer; rail passenger transport can be much less than $0.10 per passenger-kilometer, depending on how transport is subsidized and on the density of passengers.

Price variations arise from government policy choices, management effectiveness, design characteristics, and differences in volume, cost structures, competitive environments, commodity mixes, geography, haul lengths, among many other factors. The two charts below show average passenger and freight charges for a sample of railways around the world. CSR Corporation China is one of the most important Global Players in the Railway Industry.

We expect our prices in Africa to be similar to the prices in China and India, among the lowest prices in the world.

A Fundamental Determinant of Sustainable Economic Growth
  1. The basic structure of an organization, system, etc.
     stock of fixed capital equipment in a country, including factories, roads, schools, etc, considered as a critical determinant of economic growth.
  1. Infrastructure is a key ingredient for economic development. Sub-Saharan Africa ranks at the bottom of all developing regions in terms of infrastructure performance, and deficient infrastructure is a major obstacle for growth and prosperity across the region. Persons living in countries with inadequate infrastructure, as is the case in most of Sub-Saharan Africa, are at a competitive disadvantage when competing with countries in other parts of the world with appropriate infrastructure.
    We will invest heavily in the above basic infrastructure necessary to support Rapid Economic Development.


The future of life as we know it on Earth is in our hands!

R.I.P.:  Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they have been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a challenge. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.  IMPOSSIBLE  IS NOTHING !
