By professo

The Tanzania Roads Agency (Tanroads) has announced that it will be developing a road between Tanzania, Zambia, and Malawi.

The Tanzanian government, through Tanroads, aims to boost the nation’s economy by connecting the neighbouring countries.

Sh10bn (US$3.2mn) will be invested in the project, with the money having been set aside by Tanroads.

The project was presented to Parliament on 4 June, with the Deputy Minister for Works, Transport, and Communications, Elias Kwandikwa, highlighting the road’s importance for the country’s future economy.

Whilst the Mpemba-Ileje portion of the road has been proposed, construction has already begun on the Mpemba-Isongole section.

The Minister highlighted that during the 2017/18 financial year, the government had reversed Sh4.455bn ($1.5mn) for the Mpemba-Illeje project.

Kwandikwa confirmed that during the 2018/19 financial year, Sh10bn will be spent on that portion of the road.
