Expectations are high that cost of transport for strategic goods and commodities from the port of Beira into the country would be reduced once rehabilitation of the rail line connecting Malawi to the port is complete.

Minister of Transport, Sidik Mia, said the country is expected to save three dollars per tonne using the rail line as currently, the country spends $10 for each tonne ferrying goods from the port using roads.

He said this when he toured a section of the line between Limbe and Luchenza which is being rehabilitated by the Central and East African Railways (Cear).
