It’s an 80-year-old dream! In addition to the train, the railroad project will help the people of Niger master all rail related jobs.
Thanks to the construction of the rail line between Niamey and Parakou, and through Gaya and Dosso, the Bolloré Group is helping Nigeriens take advantage of an important know-how transfer.
In fact, over the past year and a half, 950 locals have been trained in various rail-related jobs.
In addition, to the concrete reinforced railway sleepers know-how transfer, Nigeriens are able to take advantage of the expertise of the Bolloré Group in track laying and adjustment, manual stuffing, track welding, engineered structuring, and operating rail vehicles and track equipment.
