Ghana Railways and Harbours

Ghana Railways and Harbours Company began in 1928 as a state-owned company which maintained the country’s railways and the port of Takoradi. In 1957, Gold Coast Railway became Ghana Railway after Ghana became an independent nation from the United Kingdom. In 1972, the company was divided into four separate public organisations: Ghana Railway Company (GRC), Ghana Port Authority (GPA), Ghana Cargo Handling Company (GCHC), Takoradi Lighterage Company (TLC).
