    • [*=left]Renewal and expansion of three main traffic arteries in the main city of Dar es Salaam

    • [*=left]Arteries linking the city and port with the inland, Burundi and Rwanda

    Dar es Salaam / Vienna, 10 February 2012 The publicly listed construction group STRABAG has received a €134 million order in Tanzania's main city of Dar es Salaam. The company will build a bus rapid transit (BRT) system: an above-ground bus transport system with separate bus lanes and priority right of way. The order includes the rehabilitation and expansion of a total of three main traffic arteries with a total length of 21.1 km linking the city and its port with the western inland, Burundi and Rwanda.

    "The works awarded to our subsidiary STRABAG International GmbH are part of the Second Central Transport Corridor Project, which is intended to support Tanzania's economic growth through an efficient transport system. The most important components are the urban transport system in Dar es Salaam, the trunk roads, and Zanzibar Airport," says Hans Peter Haselsteiner, CEO of STRABAG SE.

    The STRABAG order is divided into two lots. Lot 1 comprises the development of the road from Magomeni to Kimara including 15 bus stops, the Kimara Terminal and the Ubongo Terminal. Lot 2 includes the rehabilitation of the road from Magomeni to Kivukoni, Kawawa Road from Magomeni to Morocco and Msimbazi Road from Fire to Kariakoo including 14 bus stops and the Morocco Terminal.

    STRABAG will build centre lanes in both directions exclusively for public bus transit. The existing roadway will be widened to maintain the two-lane carriageway for mixed traffic and to add new bicycle lanes and paved pedestrian sidewalks. A bus stop will be built in the centre lane every 500–700 m, and the main and terminal stations Kimara, Ubungo and Morocco are to be developed. Additional works include infrastructure works such as the laying of drinking water pipes, the development of the wastewater system and the telecommunication network, as well as the construction of street lighting and traffic facilities.

    Construction is set to begin in February 2012. The maximum construction time is 36 months; the 17 km main road must be completed after 24 months.
