Um Qasr, Iraq, 19 April 2003
RE-OPENING OF UMM QASR TO BASRA TRAIN LINE

The reconstruction of new Iraq was put firmly on the rails today with the opening of the train line from Umm Qasr to Basra.  

This vital link will enable humanitarian aid to be transported directly from the port of Umm Qasr to the heart of Basra. 

17 Port and Maritime Regiment, Royal Logistic Corp worked along side local rail workers to repair the line and locate and refurbish rolling stock.  

Commander of the rail troop, Lt Liz Davis, remarked on the enthusiasm of the local railway workers in their return to work and overall effort undertaken.  She said: ? The Iraqi people have responded extremely positively.  It marks a return to normality for them.?  

The occasion was attended by representatives of the Umm Qasr interim committee. Chairman Najin Abd Mahdi welcomed the opening as a positive move towards rebuilding Iraq following the removal of the regime.  He said. ?This is an achievement which demonstrates the co-operation of British forces and the Iraqi people.  Now we are free, we can work to build a new Iraq.?
