    German contractor, Strabag International has won a $137.8 million tender to construct several roads and flyovers in Dar es Salaam.

    The firm is set to commence the project in two weeks’ time and be through within 36 months.

    Patrick Mfugale, the chief executive officer at Tanzania National Road Agency (TANROADS) said the 21 kilometre stretch of road will run from Kivukoni to Kimara area, while the flyovers will be built at Tazara, Ubungo, Magomeni, Fire, Kamata and Chang’ombe road junctions to address the problem of congestion.

    Mr Mfugale said the government has already disbursed the money to the contractor for the implementation of the Dar es Salaam Bus Rapid Transport (DART).

    Dar es Salaam has a total of 506 kilometres of roads, but only 120 kilometres are tarmacked.

    One of the main sources of road congestion in the city is the Ubungo bus terminal, which will be relocated to Bunju area in the outcast of the city.
    Minister for Works Dr John Magufuli said that under the DART project a total of 29 bus stands and service roads will be constructed.

    According to Mr Magufuli four firms will undertake phase one of the construction work at a cost of $181.1 million.

    “The government has also received a request from Ilala, Kinondoni, and Temeke municipal council for upgrading 27 roads from district roads to trunk roads.

    The projects are expected to help decongest the city, which is experiencing a rapid increase of vehicles currently estimated to be over one million compared with only 30,000 in the 1960s.

    Four out of the six commuter stands are in various stages of completion and the remaining two including Urafiki, where work has begun, and the other in Kariakoo Gerezani area are awaiting a court ruling.

    DART said that over $6.8 million has been spent on compensating those who have been relocated to pave the way for the project.

    However, a snag has hit the project, with a few residents at Gerezani area refusing to relocate despite being promised compensation.

    The government said that it will not allow the buses that are currently plying Dar es Salaam routes into the new system.

    All the buses for DART will be imported and will each have the capacity to carry at least 160 passengers.

    Nafikiri sred ingepata wachangiaji wengi, kama ingekuwa na kichwa cha habari ya msongamano wa magari umezidi, na hakuna hata idea ya kutafuta tiba.

    We mtu una nini? Iwe jk au siyo, tunataka foleni ipungue. Hivi hauna utashi hata kidogo wa kuacha kuitetea ccm hata mara moja kwenye mambo ya msingi? Hivi kuna hoja unayoweza kuchangia bila kutaja ccm au kumtetea jk? Hebu jaribu kuwa mtanzania kwanza na kisha mwana ccm unayoipenda kuliko maisha yako

    Siungi mkono stendi ya mabasi makubwa kupelekwa Bunju? Kwanini lakini? Lengo liwe ni kupita Bagamoyo tu?

    Kwanini Pwani wasianzishe kituo chao huko Bagamoyo? Kwakweli JK anatupelekesha sana, yani lazima stendi, uwanja wa ndege viwe kwao.

    Hata hivyo kachelewa miaka mitatu ijayo tutapiga kampeni stendi ibaki Morogoro Road. Atuondolee ubinafsi.

    Bunju nadhani wakiweka na njia ya kutokea mbezi itakuwa bomba itapunguza msongamano pale ubungo.

    nawapongeza, ila waangalie mara mbili suala la buss terminal kuwa nje sana ya mji haitasaidia
    kama wanaweka flyovers waijenge karibu na mjini kama zlilivo nchi nyingi buss terminal inakuwa mjini kuwawezesha wote watokako waweze kuunganisha usafiri sehemu yoyotemBunju itakuwa mzigo na garama kwa wengi

    Nafikiri mabasi lazima yatoe return nzuri, na project iwe endelevu lazima bus terminal, airport, railway viwe mbali na mji. ili vipate wateja wa kudumu.

    Nitaamini ikiwa tu nikiona yafuatayo

    a. stendi imehamia bunju

    b. Kumekuwepo na flyovers; otherwise inaweza kuwa porojo kwakweli
