The Nigerian Railway Corporation has announced the adjustment of the take-off time schedule for its last two trains from Idu (Abuja) to Rigasa (Kaduna) and vice versa.
The Manager, Abuja-Kaduna Train Service, Mr Pascal Nnorli, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday that the adjustments were to ensure early arrival of the trains to their destinations.
According to Nnorli, the trains will now depart 30 minutes earlier than their previous take-off time.
He said, “The AK3 from Idu (Abuja) which takes off at 3:30 pm to arrive Rigasa (Kaduna) at 5:38 pm, will now leave at 3:00 p.m., to arrive at 5:08 pm.
“Also KA4 train of 2:00 p.m. from Rigasa(Kaduna) will now depart from Rigasa at 1:30 p.m. and arrive at Idu(Abuja) at 3:37 p.m. instead of 4:07 p.m.”
According to the manager, the amendment will take effect from Dec. 12.
Nnorli, however, reiterated the commitment of the corporation to ensure the safety of its passengers and properties onboard its trains at all times.
The NRC resumed services along the Abuja-Kaduna rail corridor on December 5 after over eight months of non-operation. (Punch)
