Titanic II Will Set Sail In 2022 Following The Same Route As The Original

Another replica of the infamous passenger ship dubbed the Titanic II is set to make its first voyage in 2022.

It will welcome 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, USA Today reported, almost the exact same number of each on board the boat that sunk in 1912.

However, this time around, the ship will include an appropriate number of life boats, life-jackets and plenty of modern safety features.

The Titanic II will first take a two-week trip from Dubai to Southampton, England, according MSN.

The ship will then trace the original Titanic’s planned route from England to New York across the icy North Atlantic. After which it plans to offer worldwide cruises.

The 1912 voyage, which was immortalized in the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, was tragically cut short when the steam ship hit an iceberg.

Over 1,500 people lost their lives, more than two-thirds of those on board.

In 2015, the Blue Star Line halted work on the Titanic II because of financial disagreements, derailing plans for the ship to be ready in 2016, according to the BBC.

The company announced in September that it was continuing efforts to finish the Titanic II.

The ship will cost $500 million to recreate, according to Bloomberg.

“The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to New York, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits,” the Blue Star Line’s chairman Clive Palmer said, according to MSN.

Rail can’t run faster than 90km/h in Abuja because we don’t want to kill cows- Rotimi Amaechi

Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation has said that the Abuja-Kaduna rail line cannot run faster than 90 kilometres per hour because the ministry does not want the trains killing cows that pass through the rails while seeking pastures to graze on.

Amaechi said this when he spoke at the 24th Nigerian Economic Summit organized by the Ministry of Budget & National Plannng at the Transcorp Hilton, Abuja on Monday 22, October 2018.

The minister at the forum, highlighted the local problems being faced by the Nigerian railway system. He said Nigeria has more than enough to transport via rail, before stating restrictions caused by cows.

“The reason why we want to go back to narrow gauge is because between Lagos and Kano, we have 30 million tonnes of cargo.

Even if you do three rail lines, it cannot be enough. It took us 14 days to move coaches from Lagos to Abuja; everyday we go and ask, how far, they say we are near Ogun state… 14 days. But if it were rail, the same day, it will get to Abuja.

The kind of construction we are doing is 120 kilometres per hour (Km/h), it is a speed train.

“We are doing 90km/h with Abuja to Kaduna. The reason we are doing 90km/h is because there are cows everywhere, and we don’t want to kill cows. The other day they tried 100 and they killed how many cows, and they said ‘you people should replace the cows you killed.

From that day, I have said let us maintain the 90km/h; at 120km/h you get to Kaduna in one hour. You can work in Kaduna and live in Abuja. It was initially one, but now, we have done four locomotives with 14 coaches” he said

Alhaji Mohammed said the presence of the international bikers in Nigeria is a testimony to the fact that the Administration’s quest to promote the country’s cultural heritage and tourism sites is yielding fruits.

”As you tour Nigeria, under the ‘Rediscover Heritage Bikers Tour of Nigeria’, and visit historical heritage sites, you beam the searchlight on those sites for the world to see.

“You will see these heritage sites for yourselves as you travel through our culturally-rich and diverse nation. These sites include museums, monuments, homes of national heroes and other tourist sites,”

BASL also assured customers and passengers of MMA2 that they will continue having seamless access to the facility.

The statement said: “BASL is fully aware of the plan by some unions in the aviation sector to disrupt the operations of MMA2 over our decision to disengage some employees.

Disengaging the ex-employees had nothing to do with unionism, as we were not aware of this. In as much as we know that the unions have the right to protest without disturbing public peace and safety, we too reserve the right to ensure

“The Glory Land Castle” In Yenagoa, Bayelsa state

This castle was started by Chief Alamieyeseigha. Of course, as you know I was in the cabinet of Dr. Jonathan when he was governor.

We, within that short period that we were in government, didn’t think that completing the project as at that time was a priority. But when my immediate predecessor came on board, he managed to complete it.
“So he achieved the completion, including the furnishing and all that.

Now upon my ascension into office, I of course made it clear from day one that there was no way I was going to stay in this type of place. It is simply too grandiose. It is way out of format with my own personal standard,” he said.

The governor’s resolve on the matter is simple – make it a part of the state government’s tourism plan for the state. In that way, it becomes a revenue source.

Hence, the governor plans to convert the opulent structure into a six-star hotel to form an integral component of the new Tourism Island to boost tourism in the State.
