    THE Minister for Works, Dr John Magufuli has warned the constructor for the road between Bagamoyo and Msata to make sure that the work is accomplished in time and that the government is not ready for any excuses.

    The road’s construction work has resumed after the former constructor stopped the work in November, last year. Upon completion, it is expected to ease traffic flow along Morogoro Road to northern regions from Dar es Salaam and back.

    The minister was unhappy with the answers he received from the supervisor of the project who wanted him to understand that due to some inconveniences the project may not be accomplished by September 2012 as earlier agreed.

    The 64 kilometres road which is constructed at a tarmac level was earlier being constructed by M/s TAKOPA Construction Company Limited which entered into a contract with Tanzania National Roads Agency (TANROADS) in 2008 but failed to fulfil the terms of agreement leading to dismissal.

    Recently, the government entered into another contract with Estim Construction Company Limited at the cost of 89bn/-. Receiving the project’s explanations during his tour to the site, Dr Magufuli was irked by the consultant engineer from JBG Gauff Ingenieure GMBH & CO, Mr Kini Kiyoniza who tried to give excuses, indicating that the project would not be completed as planned.

    However, earlier, Eng Bhudia Jagdin Karsan of Estim Construction Company Limited told the minister that despite the possible inconveniences, they were still confident that the work would be completed on time.

    Dr Magufuli asked the consultant engineer to be serious with the work and that any failure to abide by the agreement would lead to dismissal of the company from getting any other contract in the country.

    He also ordered the TANROADS Manager in Coast Region, Eng Gabriel Mwikola to closely supervise the work and see to it that it was completed on time. The minister noted that the expenses of the projects were also very high and that there was no need for silly excuses.

    The cost rate of Tshs.1.39 billion per km for this road is very high. A study needs to be done to find out the causes of increased construction costs. Recommendations be considered for implementation so that future contracts don't have high construction cost rates.

    Unajua siasa ni mbaya sana,tatizo kubwa linalochelewesha kazi hizi za ujenzi kwenye nchi hii wala siyo contractors bali ni release ya payments kwa wakandarasi. mkandarasi asipolipwa hawezi kuendelea na kazi hicho ndiyo kiini cha kuchelewa completion ya miradi mingi ya barabara.
