Published February 2024, this graphic presents two maps showing regional rail lines and infrastructure corridors.

The main map shows railway lines across Angola, DR Congo Tanzania and Zambia, with a focus on the route of the Lobito Corridor railway lines from the Angolan coast to Tenke in DR Congo and the proposed Zambian spur from Luacano. It also shows the route of the Tazara railway from Dar es Salaam to Zambia.

A second, smaller map shows the proposed Liberty Corridor and railway line linking the Liberian coast to the Nimba iron ore project in Guinea. The maps also shows the route of the under construction Trans-Guinean railway, which will connect to the Simandou iso ore projects in Guinea plus the route of the Côte d’Ivoire- Liberia-Sierra Leone-Guinea (CLSG) interconnector that could allow hydropower plants in Côte d’Ivoire to export power to mining projects in Liberia and Guinea.
