Railways

Benin has a total of 578 km (359 mi) of single track, 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) (metre gauge) railway. Benin does not, at this time, share railway links with adjacent countries - Niger possesses no railways to connect to, and while the other surrounding countries, Nigeria, Togo and Burkina Faso, do have railway networks, no connections have been built. In 2006, an Indian proposal appeared, which aims to link the railways of Benin with Niger and Burkina Faso [1]. Benin will be a participant in the AfricaRail project.
