The Mozambique government plans to spend USD $500 million on a new railway linking the coal-rich province of Tete to the Port of Nacala. According to the Minister of Transportation and Communications Paulo Zucula, the government expects the line to be completed by 2015. By that time, coal production will have reached its peak in the Moatize area of Tete. The Danish government has provided funding. In 2004, 300,000 tons of coal were moved by rail from the Port of Nacala. The railway line is 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) gauge.
