Rift Valley Railways (RVR) will evaluate whether to acquire the northern railway line from Tororo to Gulu and later Pakwach if they deem it profitable, Uganda Railways Corporationâ€™s (URC) spokesperson E. Zalwango has said.
RVR won the concession to run Kenya and Uganda railways.
â€œIt is the Governmentâ€™s policy to encourage the URC winner to take up as much of the countryâ€™s railways as they can. If it wants to include the northern line, it will be encouraged. If not, others are encouraged to take it up,â€ Zalwango said.
â€œSimilarly, if RVR finds it worth its running the Kasese line, it will be given priority,â€ she said.
