    The feasibility study for the proposed four-track highway to link Arusha town and Kilimanjaro Airport is in final stages, according to the Tanzania Road Agency.

    TANROADS regional Manager Mr Desdatus Kakoko revealed here that the soon to start project will include the upgrading of the current highway from the single two-way track to a double lane, four-way road from Arusha municipality to Usa-River township from there the highway is to shrink into a two lane motorway via the Kilimanjaro International Airport junction on to Holili-Taveta border area.

    “It is an international project to be executed under the East African Community,” said Mr Kakoko adding that the distance from Arusha to Moshi being 80 kilometers the Tanzanian side of the road may have a total of 130 kilometers if the current distance between Moshi and Holili is to be added.

    The project, according to the TANROADS manager will also include a diversion of the current highway to the South of Arusha Municipality via the Old-Moshi (Now Nyerere) road which is to be upgraded into a three-track highway joining Mbauda, Unga-Limited and Njiro.

    “The feasibility study is being undertaken by the consulting engineer, M/s Egis Bceom after signing the contract with the East African Community Secretariat in August 2009 and at the moment the firm is studying the area south of the municipality,” explained Mr Kakoko.

    Meanwhile the 104.2 kilometer road project also executed under the East African Community, joining Arusha (Tanzania) and Athi-River (Kenya) via Namanga has been completed for about 35 kilometers so far. The China Geo-Engineering Corporation is undertaking the project.
