Brazil gets help building railway

SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) —Cargill Inc. is part of a group of grain trading companies analyzing whether to build an 1,100 kilometre railway in Brazil.

The Ferrogrão railway could require investments of up to US$4.8 billion.

It would link crop production regions in the centre west to the port of Miritituba in Para state, reducing the need to travel poor roads that are often impassable in rainy weather.
