Africa’s Fastest High-Speed Rail Line; Morocco Completes Successful Test.

Office Nationale des Chemins de Fer (ONCF) announced on Thursday the successful test of the fastest high-speed railway in Africa.

The latest tests were staged successfully at a speed of 320 km per hour, ONCF said in a statement, deeming the test as “historical moment for the country.

” In October, Morocco tested the rail line at a speed of 275 km per hour in the presence of French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, whose country is partly financing the project.

ONF pointed out that the next test is expected in February on the whole line. The over two-billion-dollar project has been in development for a decade, financed by numerous partners, including Morocco, France, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.
