Northern African country, Morocco prepares its engineers already to test the continent’s first high-speed railway.
With trains reaching 320 kilometres per hour, Morocco will be witnessing a historical event, as the Africa’s first high-speed railway will be tested.
In a statement released by the country’s office, it was learnt that a train on Monday, 9, 2017, reached 275 kph along a stretch of track between the northern cities of Kenitra and Tangiers.
French Prime Minister, who came to the country on a visit, Jean-Yves Le Drian said the railway was emblematic of the Franco-Moroccan bilateral relationship.
“This is already the fastest train on the African continent. Otherwise this collaboration is exemplary,” said the minister, who was in Morocco to sign a loan deal between the ONCF and the French Development Agency.
