    Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda have reached a formal agreement to construct a multi-billion dollar railway network, which would also serve South Sudan and tap into the bloc's growing trade.

    The project, to commence in 2014, is expected to take three years and cost $4.7 billion.

    This will run alonsgside the $3 billion Tanga-Arusha-Musoma-Kampala railway line that is expected to be completed by 2015.

    Tanzania and Uganda signed an agreement with China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation to undertake a feasibility study and implementation of the project, which will be the main gateway of Mwambani Port in Tanga, Musoma dock and Port Bell in Uganda.

    "We are expecting to handover the feasibility study by April while construction of the 880km railway line is expected to be completed by 2015." the Chinese engineering firm managing director Wang Xiangdong said,

    Mr Xiangdong said the railway line will be constructed to the 1,435mm, which is the standard gauge used in other countries and directed by both states.

    The project will see Tanga and Musoma ports dedicated to handle cargo, traffic destined to Uganda and South Sudan. Beyond that the project will help to ease congestion at Tanzania's principal's port, Dar es Salaam.

    Freight would be conveyed from Musoma by ferry to the Port Bell pier -- about 350km of transportation in the lake. A rail connection already runs via Tororo to Gulu – nearly 600km – on the Pakwach branch.

    A new line of roughly 250km would be constructed to Juba, and a further 550km to the Wao railhead in South Sudan.

    What about Kenya? are they omitted? or that's the End of East African Community?

    It seems Tanzania is playing a Major part in Kenya Isolation same as 1976 when Kenya was the Major Factor to Isolate JK Nyerere

    This project will never start in this "fisadi" term, may be after 2015 if other party will win the General Election.

    Hivi kwani hii reli ya kati haiwezi kuboreshwa? kama ishu ni kufika musoma kwani kutoka Mwanza hadi Musoma kuna umbali gani? hiyo gharama ni kubwa sana robo yake tu ingetosha kuboresha bandari ya Dar na reli ya kati sasa reli ya kati tu imetushinda kuiendesha tunakimbilia reli ya Tanga

    Reli ikitoka Tanga hadi Musoma watu wote wa katikati watafaidi kupunguza gharama za usafiri!!!!! Hiyo reli itatoa ajira kuanzia tanga hadi Musoma wacha tutegemee kuwa inawezekana kwa vile inamsukumo wa nje, Uganda na Sudani!!!!

    Hii imekaa kibiashara zaidi...

    Reli ya Tanga na bandari ya Mwambani ni kwa biashara ya Mafuta na mizigo mingine ya Uganda na South Sudan wao ndio wateja wetu wakuu na wameona ni bora hivyo kuliko kupitia Kenya....Mombasa

    Reli ya kwenda Rwanda na Burundi na bandari ya nchi kavu somewhere in central Tz pamoja na bandari ya DAR ndio HIYO hiyo ya kati lakini itajengwa upya....na wateja wakuu ndio hao tajwa, Rwanda na Burundi...
