NRC to reduce trips on Abuja-Kaduna route for 3 days

The Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) has announced a reduction in the number of trips on the Abuja-Kaduna rail service for three days due to scheduled maintenance.

Fidet Okhiria, NRC’s managing director, said this in a statement released on Sunday.

Okhiria said that the reduction in the number of trips would take effect from October 19 to 21.

The NRC MD explained that there would only be four trips rather than the daily 10 trips on the first two days.

He added that on October 21, the number of trips would be eight, assuring that “full train services will resume on October 22″.

The NRC management apologised for inconveniences the reduction in the number of trips might cause passengers.

The 187 km standard gauge line between Kaduna and Abuja, which President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated on July 26, 2016, had suffered a handful of mechanical faults since it began operations.

The recent one was a mechanical fault on June 28, when passengers were stranded a few kilometres away from the train station in Rigasa, Kaduna state.
